Strabane Flood 1987

At 1:55am on the morning of 22nd October 1987, the banks of the River Mourne at Lower Main Street of Strabane burst causing a flood. It destroyed local homes and businesses.

Aidan McKelvey shot a short video on the day where he interviewed various local people who were directly affected by the flooding and those who were helping to rescue others.
