How about we remap the floodplane and make it easier to get flood insurance. Savanna has many areas that are held back by man made obstructions. Obviously, they can fail. Same thing for Mount Carroll and surrounding areas. This disaster happened from rainfall. Most of the damaged occurred from the runoff of rainfall alone. The run-offs fill the rivers and we get a flood. It can happen again and again. How about we find funds to help those with water damage and those who are now without homes. How about the cities help with disposal of the heaping piles of ruined possessions that are building up outside these houses as the people try to salvage and separate what is keepable. Someone knows how to go about getting help for these people. Let's not keep it a secret.
