Still waiting. The National Guard has been working 24/7 to keep our city....well...here. The Missouri River wraps around our city, so there's so much opportunity for a levee break. So far, so good. Levees north and south of us have breached, flooding the interstate and many homes and farms. Go here to see how bad things really are along the Missouri River.
This is the industrial levee on the wet side of the federal levee that protects my husband's employer. It's still holding, although seepage and sewer backups have become an issue.

What challenging existence you all are going through. Any idea when the water level will crest and start draining away?
It is too bad we can't just pipeline some of this water to drought areas. We're probably at or close to crest now, as long as the Corps don't increase the outflows of the dams upstream more. We're forecast to stay right where we're at for the entire month of July, who knows after that.
Good news is our house is on that hill you see in the background in the above photo. We have our own well and septic system & off the city services. For that, I am very thankful.
Alarming foto's, PL--We here live in a constant threat situation of water, as we libe under the sea level and are protected by a series of dikes.
Wow, all I can say is wow. We are so sheltered when we aren't experiencing first hand the devastation. So sorry for you that you are going through this yourself. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
