Mark Richardson, right, and Ron Buchanan play pool while standing in flood water inside Red's Again Tavern on July 19, 1993, in Portage des Sioux, Mo. The tavern had been closed all week because of flooding from the Mississippi River, but the owner allowed residents in to pick up food and beer. "It sucks out here, but we make it fun," Richardson said.

This year marks the 20th year anniversary of the Great Flood of 1993, where the Missouri and Mississippi rivers overflowed in one of the most devastating and costliest floods in the history of the United States.

Where were you during the Great Flood of 1993? How did it affect you?

The Missourian is looking to collect responses, as part of a project called the Public Insight Network that collects stories and expertise from the community.

Supervising editor is Joy Mayer.
