It was a warm spring in 1987 which caused the snow to melt quicker than usual. Add that to a slow moving powerful rain, the rivers and streams couldn't handle the excess water which caused them to crest. What followed was a flood like the state had never seen.

Over 2,000 homes were flooded, around 200 of those homes were completely destroyed, roads and bridges were wiped out or severely damaged. In fact the damage in Maine was estimated at over $100 million.
