Oregon flooding in 1964.

The smoke-filled summers are a recent addition to the region, for most of us.  But disasters like fires and floods are common through the years of recorded history here. 

Ron Brown, former TV newscaster and history buff, has lived through and covered quite a few of them.  He brings together a number of key events for a public talk through the Southern Oregon Historical Society, "Fire and Flood: Disasters in the Rogue Valley."

The event is Wednesday (March 6th) at Noon at the Medford Library.  Ron stops by the studio to give an overview of some of the major disruptions.
