We contacted the city of Roanoke and got numbers from the last five years, and the flood of 1985.
We were told the city only tracks expenditures for major disasters that require state or federal funds.
The flood in February 2003 cost 276-thousand dollars for clean up and damage to equipment at Victory Stadium.
The flood in 1985 added up to more than 155-thousand dollars.
Damage estimates for last week's flood already top 100-thousand dollars.

Because Halloween falls on a Sunday, some communities will observe it on Saturday, the 30th, so it won't disrupt family activities and church services that occur on Sunday. Those communities include Henry County and the city of Martinsville, Alleghany County and the city of Covington, as well as Pittsylvania, Giles, Pulaski and Carroll Counties. Bedford and Appomattox counties say they will decide whether to make any changes at their next board of supervisors meetings.
