I think Indiana should file a lawsuit against Ohio if this state receives any damage from water overflowing the "Ohio" river.

Actually, I think Kentucky owns most of the Ohio River.

Then Indiana should sue both of the states and get double damages. :D

A good litigation lawyer knows to go for the deep pockets no matter how ridiculous. The name of the river being Ohio should be good enough for a mega million dollar settlement between the attorneys on both sides.

Actually, West Virginia owns a big hunk of it as well.

The flooding happens just about every year.

And every year the media interviews some people who live along the river who tearfully tell of how they "lost everything". Then the reporter asks if they are going to move back when the flood recedes and they sey "Yep. Lived here all my life".

Most of these people do not get the insurance and private carriers will not offer it in the highest risk flood plain areas.

One reason my company moved from being downtown was that it was almost wiped out in the 1997 flood. We built a new plant 20 miles north of town in 1999. We now buy flood insurance.

Flood insurance is relatively inexpensive down here but mandatory in sore fema designated areas of town, luckly I don't need it, but I have seen my homeowners insurance go from $450 to $2,700 per year in 12 years. Sometimes I wonder if I should pay it at all or just place the money in an interest bearing account and become self-insured.

Why not see if you can get a policy with a huge deductible (self insurance) and put the money saved into an interest bearing account and only buy catastrophic?

I grew up next to the river in Newport, Ky. We had a floodwall to protect the smart people. That thing was cool in the winter to sleed ride down. When I turned 18 I left for the Army and never lived by the river since. I like the River but would like to live on a look out on top of the hills if I could, maybe someday. I live in the suburbs now about 10 miles away.

I heard they closed the floodgates yesterday for the first time since the big flood of 97.

I'll have to find a way around it... They don't offer too many choices.

Those things are huge. If the water ever came over the wall the world would be over.
