We ignore history at our peril, especially when it comes to flooding. I recently discovered a little known documentary about the 1993 Mississippi floods, and am working on a review for this blog.
In the meantime here's a wonderful source of historical footage, Quality Information Publishers. They have a huge catalog, and have assembled many of the old depression-era (insert joke about current depression here) documentaries into DVD sets. This is much better than tracking down and ordering individual films.
And the prices are very reasonable. Go there and enter "flood" into the search feature. A great resource.
