Farm buildings and livestock along the Coon Creek were swept away. The floods produced considerable damage in Bartley, Indianola and Cambridge. Almost every business in Indianola was impacted by the flood. Sections of Railroad tracks were washed away. Adjusted for inflation, the total loss in the flood area was around 1.5 million dollars.
