BEFORE: On Monday, August 12, 2002, I walked through the Old Town. On a back street, I found a high-water marker (left) from the earlier 1890 flood and this woman who was as interested in the marker as I was. In the end, the 2002 flood would far exceed the 1890 tragedy, though because of the barrier walls, the surface water would not reach the Old Town. Photo credit: Mark Baker.
