  • Short Summary

    New footage of the flood damage in America shows the continuing devastation.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Flood disaster grows. Appalling total of death rain and damage increases daily."

    United States of America (USA).

    Air to ground shots of the flooded landscape around the Mississippi. Factories, towns, fields are all under water. The river sweeps by an industrial area. A shot showing a row of boats almost in silhouette, rescue people. There is a high angle shot of people milling about carrying bundles of belongings. It could be a dock area. There is shot of refugees sitting on an open train truck, being transported away from the flood area. A man walks and runs along by the train, as it moves off slowly, as if to say one more good-bye to someone on board.
