Our town is nestled right on the bank of the Missouri River. Nebraska is one state north of us, and they’ve had devastating flooding, which translates to our area experiencing some.
After we moved to Leavenworth, there was the Flood of ’93. Since that, we had major flooding only one other time (in 2011). But, here we are again, and the waters have risen to flood stage. Thankfully, it hasn’t seriously impacted things except for flooding some roads, and impacting a business or two, some city areas, and the park. We joined others from the area Saturday who also looked at the flood.
Watching the river swiftly fly by at a speed many times its normal flow felt sobering. One would not want to be caught in the middle of a flood.
Are any of our readers affected by flooding?
“Save me, O God; for the waters are come
in unto my soul. I sink in deep mire, where
there is no standing: I am come into deep waters,
where the floods overflow me.”
