Amazingly, only one fatality occurs, when a blind Negro man named "Phoe" Larkins is swept from a box car in New Town. Within a few days, Andrew Jenkins will record the song Alabama Flood for OKeh Records, and Vernon Dalhart will record Alabama Flood for Harmony Records, both songs being inspired by the calamity.
