Dark times - floods and emigration - Patagonia


To cap it all, the Camwy Valley was struck in 1899 by the worst floods since the arrival of the first Welsh settlers in 1865. According to contemporary reports, it rained in the Camwy Valley for more than three weeks, which caused the level of the river to rise at a rate of fifteen inches every twelve hours. Homes and property were damaged and settlers escaped to higher ground for safety.
