2011 Flooding - Continuing news story



PENNYRILE REGION - A composite of WPSD's coverage of the 2011 flooding in the region. Besides the trauma of being forced to move out of homes because of rising water, some of our viewers had to leave their homes because the Corps of Engineers decided to blow the Birds Point Levee and flood surrounding farmland to relieve stress from other levees.

Every person on our news team lived with flooding or knew someone who was flooded out of their home or business.
