Franklin couple walks long road to recovery after losing home in flood


Bob and Shirley Seng are pictured sitting in their love swing on the front porch of their house on Graham St. in Franklin, In, Tuesday, May 21, 2013. Five years ago a flood in Franklin destroyed the Seng's home on Dunn St. in Franklin. The Sengs left a shooting competition in Ohio early and raced home to make sure their dogs were ok and salvage anything they could from their flooded home. The Sengs have been living on Graham St. for five years since the flood. Mike Wolanin / Daily Journal
