When the topic of floods was introduced, it got me thinking of the great flood around the Miramichi area in the year of 1970, month of February and earlier years. Here are just a few of the pictures that were taken. I took this pictures from the Facebook site "OUR MIRAMICHI HERITAGE PHOTOS" https://www.google.ca/?gfe_rd=ctrl&ei=-L40U4qnEsmD8QeA24HIAQ&gws_rd=cr#q=facebook%2Four+miramichi+heritage+photos.
This was Castle Street, Newcastle. The street is now called Newcastle Blvd. and the town is now called Miramichi. Right behind these buildings on the left was the Miramichi River, and it sure did over flow on this particular day!!

This was Vic Chenier's Cadillac---don't imagine it was any good after this flood!!
I threw in a fire for good measure, I just liked the old gas tank. The family of Irvings owns pretty well everything in New Brunswick. The three original brothers got the nicknames of Oily, Greasy, and Gassy.
Here a 1/2 ton did not fare well in the 1970 flood at the Irving wharf in Newcastle/Miramichi.
