heard on the st. louis news, losses are expected to exceed 500 million $ and take 3-5 years to rebuild, there will be alot of work there and hopefully will bring some profits to some of the business's there

Get into reality. Mother nature is a strong force that you can not plan for.

Wrong....you can plan for and have too! You can bet these won't be replaced with the same construction.....even the new one's built this year that failed.

If no one built better the next time, where would things be? The wolf blew down the piggys house made of straw, the wolf then blew down the house made of wood.....but.....the last piggy build it strong enough that the structure could withhold the forces (Wolf). Simple stuff!!!

VonBongo, you don't live there anymore by Millers? Where are you at now?

Millers seemed to have a well built dock system.

Someone enlighten me on the 3-5 years to rebuild. I watched a crew of 5 guys build a dock with 24 slips sized 12'x36' +/- in 10 days. Unless were talking a materials shortage here.........I know the damage is extensive but that long !!

The estimate took into account deer season(s)!

new docks were out 3-4 months before this happened.... what they can do, and what they do are two different things... and that estimate might take into consderation the massive amount of fiberglass that will need to be fixed...

3-5 years more than likely includes damage to all of the marina's here on the Mississippi River. We had extensive damage here locally as well.
