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.
