I’m sure you’ve heard stories of recent flooding along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, I’ve even blogged about the Bird’s Point Levee.
Today the flooding is a little closer to home. Early Friday morning the main levee at Norborne, Missouri, was breached. As I type this blog the town of Norborne is being evacuated. Norborne is directly north of Clinton on the north side of the Missouri River. The flooding in Norborne is expected to reach the levels of 1993.
I grew up in Lexington, which is located across the river south of Norborne, and I remember too well the devastating effects of the flooding in 1993. Please keep the residents of Norborne and surrounding communities in your prayers.
