Preview | 1m 16s

Oregon Experience's 11th season will premiere with the story of Vanport. During the early 1940s, Vanport, Oregon was the second largest city in the state. But on a Sunday afternoon in May 1948, it disappeared completely - destroyed by a catastrophic flood. This is the story of what it was like to live here, how it suddenly ended and how it changed the face of Portland.
