Description

Civil and environmental engineer Africa Espina and a friend rode a canoe to her flooded home in Mosquito Flats on June 14, 2008. Inside, they found several feet of water, but had thankfully been able to elevate most belongings off the floor before the evacuation. Listen to her explain why she still thinks about the 2008 flood on an almost daily basis.
