In an unrelated historical event, in March 1963, the James River experienced heavy flooding that engulfed a dwelling on Sharp’s Island near the 14th Street bridge. Although the river did not reach the initially predicted crest, it still rose over 4 feet above flood stage at Westham and approximately 5 feet above flood stage at the City Locks.

This historical account serves as a reminder of the powerful forces of nature that can wreak havoc on communities. The images captured during this period, such as J.F. Hastings and his family navigating the floodwaters by boat, highlight the resilience and adaptability of individuals in the face of adversity.

While the news of Julius Brown’s death is a tragic event in the present, reflecting on past challenges can provide perspective and remind us of the importance of supporting one another during difficult times. It is essential for the local community to come together, provide any information they may have to assist the police investigation, and offer support to those affected by this loss..
