Just found this video on youtube about the floods in Strabane in 1987. Very good video and nice to see how people worked together on this. One thing that struck me is as you remember in New Orleans, one of the immediate problems was looting. But there wasn't anything like that in Strabane. Real comradery from all sides of the community is this "war torn" town.
And being from the border area myself, it was fun to see all those familiar faces from 20 years ago.
