In a July 6, 2011, photo, Maurice Lewis walks with his dog, Harley, in the former Cedar City area, just across the river from Jefferson City, Mo. Lewis lived in this block through the floods of 1993 and 1995 and was one of the few whose home was inhabitable after the flood of 1993.
In a July 1, 2011 photo, Daniel and Claudia Boyce stand where their former home stood, in north Jefferson City, Mo., and describe the houses and buildings that stood on these lots before the flood of 1993. Both grew up in the small town of Cedar City, just across the Missouri River from Jefferson City. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has spent more than $2 billion to buy out land in flood-prone areas over a nearly two-decade period. The buyout program launched after widespread flooding in 1993 now has gobbled up almost 37,000 properties, tearing down the homes that were there and prohibiting people from rebuilding. In some cases, entire neighbors and small towns have disappeared as a result of the buyouts.
