  • Hailed as heroes, two men died fighting to save Kansas town from flooding

    In the summer of 2011, fear reigned in the town of Elwood, Kan. as the rains came and the record snowmelt turned the Missouri River into a monster. Remembering the flood of 1993, townspeople were fearful and ready to evacuate if the water breached the levees. Turns out the levees held, but two men working to protect the town from flooding, Bill Brubaker and Craig Sheppard, gave it their all and their lives to protect the town of Elwood.
