Link: News reports of local disasters in the US and Canada
« on: Wednesday 22 May 13 20:37 BST (UK) »
If you're looking for news of local disasters - fires, floods, storms, etc. - here's a website.  It includes even very small disasters as I discovered when I came upon a non-fatal barn fire in Endeavor, Wisconsin in 1909 which, unfortunately or fortunately, did not involve any of my ancestors.
