Mighty MO flood
Friday, June 10, 2011
I live in Iowa and the Missouri River is between IA & NE. I work in NE. My house is two miles away from the Missouri River from the West, from the North I am 1 mile away, and that is where the water will be coming from when it reaches over the levees. The water level is at flood stage and higher, and it will continue on getting higher throughout the days & weeks. I am leaving for vacation next week & will return Sunday night, and would HATE to see what the water came too. My hubby & daughter are staying home while I am on vacation. This vacation was planned since January, so I am not missing out on it.
The two pics are pictures of the river coming inland. One is Ameristar Casino, as you can see to your right there is water next to the parking garage, well that there was the Employee parking lot, now covered by feet of water.
The other picture is taken in upper IA somewhere by Sioux City I believe.
