We drove around some of the back roads and took a few pictures of the flooding. We couldn’t get real close to the interstate where you could see the flooding. These are mostly near the Meramec River, a little south of St. Louis. Click images to enlarge.
Below are photos from the news media of Interstate 55 from yesterday afternoon. The highway flooded last night and had to be closed. The river crested today and they’re reopening two lanes in one direction this evening. Hats off to MODOT for working their butts off trying to keep it open and for getting it back open (partially) so quickly.
The water running across the bottom of the photo below is the actual Meramec River. Everything else is flood water.
