Sioux City collector compares and recalls 1952 flood
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
This flood fight in 2011 has many times been compared to the historic Missouri River flood of 1952.
Ron Millage of Sioux City was 12-years-old when the 1952 floods hit. In his Sioux City collection he has a book of postcards from that flood as well as a poster. He says the 1952 flood and this flood are very similar.
"It's a real comparison to that one there. If we didn't have the dams now, we would be in a lot of problems. We do any ways, but it could be a whole lot worse," said Millage.
Millage has been collecting Sioux City memorabilia for over 20 years.
