Hi.

I just recently started reading Insomnia. In the scene where Ralph is being driven home by Trigger Vachon, one of them recalls Derry's downtown section falling into the canal during a storm. Did this happen? In which book / story?

Thanks
The destructive storm happens at the end of IT

Just did a little more research. In Dreamcatcher it was the reference to the Standpipe being destroyed in the 1985 flood and the plaque dedicated to the victims of the flood I was thinking of.
Yep -- the standpipe fell over, the library imploded and there was a lot of other destruction. "THE WORST SPRING STORM IN MAINE HISTORY" - from the May 31, 1985 section of IT.
