We did learn from the past.
On Sunday evening in Cynthiana and Harrison County, it was obvious that we all were having flashbacks from the 1997 flood.
As rain continued to fall, families in the west side of town could be found looking out front doors, loading special belongings into cars, watching the river waters creep into Rev. Ross Park and remembering an earlier flood 13 years ago that swept away everything from so many people.
It was also evident that county, city and law enforcement officials had taken some notes after March 1997.
