The hostile disposition of the savages, and their allies, caused General Clark, the commandant at the Falls of the Ohio, immediately to begin an expedition with his own regiment, and the armed force of the country, against Pecaway, the principal town of the Shawanese, on a branch of Great Miami
, which he finished with great success, took seventeen scalps, and burnt the town to ashes, with the loss of seventeen men.
The study calculates that the Great Miami
Hurricane of 1926 would be the most expensive, costing an estimated $125 million if it occurred nowadays, followed by the Okeechobee Hurricane of 1928, which would cost $65 billion.
It just so happens, a few miles away, the Great Miami
River has a lot of gravel to give.
The most damaging storm was easily the Great Miami
Hurricane of 1926, which at $157 billion when adjusted for inflation and current population increases and development, nearly doubles the $80 billion pricetag of Hurricane Katrina.
Topping the list: the Great Miami
Hurricane, a category 4 cyclone that in 1926 was responsible for $100 million in damages; when adjusted to 2005 values, the storm damage was $139.5 billion, the scientists said.
The most costly at $16.5 million, the Stewart Street bridge over the Great Miami
River in Dayton opened to traffic in November.
