Out of sight

According to 200 years of record keeping, the Susquehanna River floods about every 15 years. Not all floods are severe but they do happen regularly and cost a lot for the home owners in the river basin. My wife and I purchased a home in Jersey Shore in 1967 and five years later, 1972, we found that our home was in the flood when the tropical storm Agnes hit our town. At that time, President Nixon gave a flood grant of $5,000 for provable damage from the flood and also you could get a loan at special interest to help to rebuild.
