These pictures were taken today in St. Louis. They weren't taken downtown in a low spot near the Mississippi or along the River Des Peres. These were taken in an area that is too high to flood in southwest St. Louis City. This just doesn't happen here!
I grew up in St. Louis & even though I live in the county now, I still go into the city often - in this very spot - and I've never seen anything at all like this before.
Just saw these pictures and they are something else! I grew up in St. Louis, and I remember the River Des Peres overflowing when I was a child. Now I live in the south and our area has been devastated by tornado storms--- in recent months. 1140 days ago
This is so sad, I live in an area where surrounding communities get flooded. Water comes up to the red lights, in hurricane Lee it tore homes apart in so many communities & a lot of the homes had to be torn down. One little girl was at her grandmothers & watched on the news as she saw her house fall apart, she was devastated husbands parents home ( they are deceased ) the water was up past the windows in the home, it had to be completely gutted inside not one wall was standing only the beams to the home.Take care Judy 1168 days ago
