"I knew that I had to leave," said Rose Miller, who was an emergency dispatcher during the 1976 flood. "I could tell by the way the water was coming it was going to be much worse this time."

"At about 3:20 a.m. the water reached up to the window level and we started seeing the curtains move inside," Dan Waggoner said about a neighbor's home. "The house was taken in an instant."
