WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Barbara Long's heart breaks for the people of Houston. The 85 year-old remembers well how the floods of 1993 impacted her and her home on 11th St. in West Des moines. "The water came about three steps up," said Long. "The basement was full and they called and told us to evacuate and I thought it`s never been down here before, not this far down. 8th Street maybe, but not this far down and he said ma`am you`re standing in four feet of water right now, I said oh my Jesus."
