The Flood of April 1987

A bridge over troubled waters: Faculty member emeritus Frank Gutmann took this photo of the Hill Bridge during the flooding of 1987.

Steady rain brought serious flooding to southern New Hampshire during the first week of April 1987. In Exeter outer Court Street was flooded, Linden Street was closed and several low-lying sections of town were evacuated. The school athletic fields were still partly flooded about a week after the start of spring term, when I took the above photograph of the Hill Bridge.
