So the NWS says that the 1993 floods caused $15 billion in damages, and was the cause of 50 deaths. Assuming the $15 billion is 1993 dollars, in today's dollars that would be $26.8 billion.
I wouldnt be surprised if this topped that

Due to Trump running nearly an hour late he cancelled all local interviews so he can get back on schedule for his campaign event in Yuma.

roughly 45 minute scripted round table with no democrats (Abby was excluded even though it is her district but Ashley her competitor in November was there). Heading back to the plane now.

I did go out to show my son the plane.

What a piece of ****. Abby seems like the one politician actually drawing attention to this. Suppose at least this way you don't get paper towels tossed at you.

Just got internet back - located in Marion! We were fortunate to get power back on Thursday. Still have a lot of friends without power in this area.

Still no power at my place in NE side. Some house on the street got it today. The company working my street was at my place at 730pm and said they would be back first thing in the AM and should be good to go at some point tomorrow. The guy I spoke with is from LA, Cal. We has in NY last week and Daytona last week and arrived in CR Monday night with his company. Staying in Dubuque, but probably moving to the Prairie HS gym to get more sleep and not be in the road so early for 6-7am start. He hasn't seen his wife and kids in LA since July 4. Wow.

yeah I looked at it from a standpoint of our states historical disasters (which was from the post I quoted). The floods of 93 affected all of the states bordering the Mississippi and Missouri rivers... not just Iowa. That 15 billion number was for all of the states affected: Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota
