Just days after a winter storm dumped another thick layer of snow on the Tri-State Area, cities on the Mississippi River have been advised about probable spring flooding.
Keokuk and Warsaw, Ill., are taking the flood risk warning seriously. Both
cities fought serious battles during the Flood of 2008 to keep the raging river
from breaching levees and damaging city infrastructure.
The previous great flood, known as the Flood of 1993, was called a 500-year
flood because of itsrecord-breaking
high water levels and destruction. From
