40 years ago you didnt see this in Lamont because the area was properly irrigated. Now with farmers looking to farm every inch of land they can for ethanol etc, the run off goes right into town. If you need proof, check out the corn EVERYWHERE.

It's really a rough time. Noone has flood insurance - it's never been a problem area.... most won't be covered by insurance and FEMA may be of little assistance AND flooding again today.
