I read on Wikipedia that the total damages from ’93 were around 15 billion dollars, but I can’t find an estimate for what the damages from this flood will be.

1 Thought on Will the recent flooding in the Midwest this year rival the great flood in ’93?

    I was in Iowa in ’93, and my parents still live there. Strange we’d have two 500 year floods 15 years apart huh?

    I think the ’93 floods lasted longer, and therefore caused more disruption. I also think (but don’t know) that the ’93 floods covered a larger area.

    So in short, I don’t think this year’s will.
