In the year 1952 Satpuli witnessed a great flood in which many people lost their life and the old shops including some G.M.O.U. Ltd. owned buses swept away. Later shopkeepers resettled at the present location. At the hydle power station there has been erected a monument in the memory of deceased people in this biggest flood of nayar valley.
