Major floods occurred in four areas in the United States during 1953: western Oregon and northwestern California, Louisiana and adjacent States, the Missouri River basin in Montana, and northwestern Iowa.
Monetary loss from floods in 1953 was much lower than in any one of the preceding 3 years and was less than half the national annual average as computed by the Weather Bureau.
