50th Anniversary of Hurricane Agnes, and Dickinson’s Role in the Emergency Response, With Mike Bilder ’07
In June 1972, the remnants of Hurricane Agnes caused unprecedented, widespread, catastrophic inland flooding throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. In Pennsylvania alone, more than 220,000 people were left homeless. Fifty years later, Agnes is still the worst disaster in Pennsylvania history, and many of its flood records still stand across several states. Agnes played a major role in the evolution of emergency management in the U.S., including the formation of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Dickinson even played a direct role in the Agnes response, with students and staff stepping up to help others when they needed it most. This presentation will examine Agnes and its legacy from both the macro and micro perspectives.
