FLOOD NEWS FROM MOLLIE HABERER

Eric and Mollie's after the flood
She said . . . .
"
River up in our backyard not quite as bad as 1993 but it keeps coming up.  We had 4 1/2 inches but our neighbor had 6 1/2 last night. I don't know what they had west that's what's going to hurt us!"


Mollie posted this on facebook on
 Labor Day.
"As you can see it has receded some but not a lot. After looking at it Eric says the damage is a lot he feels like it would be millions of dollars along the Saline River from Northwest Kansas down to the Wilson dam. Luckily in this area there was nobody lost in the flood they were able to recuse 14 people: they were camp just a few miles from our house in a lower area. There was a man from the Hill City/Hoxie area that lost his life in the flood. It definitely was a flash flood."
