A look back at the 2008 area flooding
It's been a more than a decade since incessant rains flooded the southeast Missouri area during 2008. Little did our communities know then that a winter storm dubbed the worst in history would soon follow the flood, ravaging the central part of the United States ultimately devastating our region further. Since that time, our towns and riverways have endured a barrage of tragic flooding in the years of 2011 and 2017. We may face adversity at times in our communities, but we never fail to rally together and conquer anything standing in our way.
