The website stated the whirlpool in the river was approximately 150 feet in diameter and 5,000 miners became unemployed overnight.

I cant imagine 5,000 miners being employed at one underground mine.

thats cause it was many underground mines throughout the valley- all connected... therefore, all flooded.
