I think it was 1994 when the last big flood happened. Not sure if the river came up that high, but it was high!!

What about near McDonald's, the one near Rural King? Does that area ever get flooded? Such as those houses across the street from McDonald's, which are in short walking distance of the river? Some of them have basements. I wonder if any of those basements ever get full of water from a flood.

Have people died in floods in Owensboro?

Why do you ask so many questions? Flooding here is not like it is along the Mississippi.

I believe in 97 it there was some water up to 2nd st. not in very many places . For sure 1st was closed. I agree with No Sir have never seen or heard of water near the houses across from Mc Donalds.
