Two serious floods occurred in the Stephenville area in 1983. In January heavy rains combined with snow melt caused Blanche Brook and Warm Creek to burst their banks.

In August, 3 days of heavy rainfall resulted in flooding described as the worst in the town's history. $100,000 of damage was reported.
