What is a bit scary too, is that since this whole region has been drought ridden since I was a small girl, how many of the people who live there will have insurance for flood cover? My parents, brother and his family have been trying to raise their household goods up today and we believe the water will be about a foot into my parents yard sometime tonight - if the water continues to rise as they fear, their house will have water inside it tomorrow. And their house is 4 blocks away from the river!! I know that they don't have flood cover. But you know, we will deal with that if or when it happens and as long as they are alive and kicking.... I don't care.
Send out a prayer or two tonight, though, if you wouldn't mind. Thanks, Annie
