Area rivers continue to rise after the latest storms pushed through the region. Residents in Clarksville, Mo., and other river towns are preparing for flood waters as the Mississippi, the Missouri, and the Meramec Rivers rise with snowmelt and rain waters. Grafton residents are scrambling to move belongings to higher ground. The Meramec is backing up due to the rising Mississippi. And areas like Creve Coeur Park are seeing the results of the rising Missouri River.
