This week marks the 10th anniversary of the Great Flood of 1993, when flood waters throughout the Midwest pushed to levels never seen before or since. In many places in Missouri, the floodwaters would remain for weeks,even months, doing billions of dollars in damages. Mike “Pee Wee” Forck farms Missouri River bottomland just outside of Jefferson City. He was there when the waters breached the levee right next to his corn and soybean crop, inundating his fields under more than 20 feet of water. Forck says for weeks he saw nothing but water every day he was awake and practically every night in his nightmares. But he says he gained a new respect for the river that year and the power it holds.
