Where I was raised, we didn't have many tornadoes, but floods were a different matter. This was the Church of St. John Gaulbert, in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, after the 1889 flood. It was one of the oddities of the flood. A house was washed up against one of the walls. A stove in the house started a fire, which resulted in the church being under water almost to roof level while the roof and tower were on fire. At least 2,200 people died that day.
