Flood of 93

Des Moines Floods of 1993

As many residents of Iowa who lived here in the early 1990s recall, the Flood of 1993 was devastating to the entire Des Moines metro area. Still some of the worst flooding to date for the Des Moines area, many parts of the city were not accessible due to the high waters. A number of our vans which held truck mounts to suck up water had to be airlifted by the Iowa National Guard to be able to help residents and businesses remove flood water damage.
