The city of Decatur is featured prominently in a soon-to-be released documentary that focuses on two statewide battles against flooding more than 100 years apart.
The 30-minute program, "When Every River Turned Against Us — Lessons from the Great 1913 Flood," attempts to show what communities have learned in the wake of the Great Easter Flood a century ago. A five-minute segment of the film focuses on Decatur and the assistance it provided residents in the local flooding disaster of 2003.
The first measurable snowfall of the season fell on Adams County Monday evening. City officials recorded 1 inch of the white stuff on the ground this morning.
