As you can see by my profile picture I live about a half mile away from the Missouri River. I live on the side of a hill out of the actual flood plain. The FEMA maps say my home is in the true 500 year flood plain but my house did not flood in 1993. The flood the media called the 500 year flood. Everyone in Mokane would tell you that my home will never flood. You will not hear me say that. The river tend to make people who say things like that look like a fool. It may take 20 or 30 years to do it but it will eventually get you.
