4 years ago, flooding forced people by the Meramec to 'pick your side'

  • 0

During a 10-day span in late April to early May of 2017, more than 10 inches of rain fell in the St. Louis area, causing flooding that shut down portions of Interstates 44 and 55 and damaged hundreds of homes and businesses.

Here are some historic pages and aerial photos of Meramec River flooding, scenes from Interstate 55 in Arnold, Soccer Park in Fenton, Valley Park, Interstate 44 and Highway 141, Eureka High School, downtown Eureka, and flooding of homes in Pacific.
