Title from title frame.
An amateur home video of the devistation and aftermath of hurricane Agnes, June 23, 1972, in Corning, New York.
Silent film with no captions.
After a display of newspaper clippings about the 1972 flood in Corning, there are aerial and street-level views of various areas of Corning during the flood and shortly after the waters receded, including damage and clean-up. There are no views of The Corning Museum of Glass or Glass Center.
The film is very dark at times - probably a portion of this video was shot during early morning hours, and other problems are a result of the deterioration of the film. The quality of color varies greatly throughout the film.
This film along with "Corning, New York flood" (BIB#62268), and "Summer 1972" (BIB#62312), can be viewed on a combined video "[Corning flood series] (BIB#63051)".
