  1. Would you ask brettfiles a couple of questions....1. Did his house get water in it after he posted the midnight video? 2. Is that his home where he ends up near the casino? 3. How high is the water now on the arch in front of the casino also a shot of the Baymont Inn next to Harrahs. My prayers are with you all. Thank you for updating each day. You have such a beautiful community and I so enjoy coming your way each year. Portsmouth Ohio

  2. I appreciate your interest and I am amazed at the number of people following along. To address some of your questions. My house stayed dry the whole time thanks to the Army Corps of Engineers blowing the Birds Point Levee and allowing the New Madrid Floodway in Missouri to flood. I live within walking distance of the casino so I have a pretty good vantage point. Water is probably 4-5 feet deep at the arch, the Baymont Hotel had water get over their floors in the hotel.
