A family watches helplessly as their belongings are swept under by the raging waters. A poor farmer looks on as his crops are flooded and his lively hood is swept down stream. Thousands of people flee their homes - memories shattered. In a small town known as 'Morehouse' 280 homes (about two-thirds of the towns residences) are destroyed. Neighbors pull together to lend a helping hand to one another without thought or question for their own safety. Not since the great flood of 1937 have we witnessed such peril.
With flood waters receding in Southeast Missouri, residents finally can get a look at the damage. However, they already know that their lives, and the lives of their friends and neighbors will forever be scarred.
