Note: The Crest History has been corrected and updated reflecting crests back to March 1929 and adjusted for changing reference datums. Please note that the maximum flood of record for March 1929 was corrected from 25.00 ft which was measured from a 4.19 ft datum, to 29.19 ft which is reference Mean Sea Level (MSL). All crests listed on this site are now reference MSL ie NGVD 29 datum of 0.0 ft.
