Marietta, OH is located at the confluence of the Ohio and Muskigum
rivers, about 200 miles east of Cincinnati. It was the first
major settlement west of the Alleghenies, predating Cincinnati by
roughly thirty years. The remnants of Hurricane Ivan caused the
worst flooding the city has seen in fourty years.
