A mud-covered arm rises out of floodwaters to knock on a door labeled "Congress". Several men anxiously look out the window at the arm; one says it will take something besides levees. The arm is labeled "Worst Flood in this Area in 100 Years"; the water is flooding from the Missouri, Mississippi, and Des Moines rivers, among others.
