While recent flood waters were nearly as high as they were in 2008, the damage, this time, was limited in Hannibal. In recent years, the city bought more than 40 flood prone properties. City manager Jeff LaGarce said it definitely was. For example, they don't have to make water rescues like this every time it floods. LaGarce said in 2010, there were more than 20 water rescues, but this year, not a single one. For business owners who sold their property, they're happy they don't have to worry about rising water anymore.
