“Missouri has been hit by several rounds of severe storms in the past few weeks, and last night’s dangerous weather follows several days of heavy rain,” Gov. Nixon said. “I want to assure Missourians that the state will continue to work closely with local communities. Because many streams and rivers are overflowing their banks, we will need to stay vigilant in both monitoring and responding to flooding across the state as well. This remains a dangerous situation.”
Before he assessed damage in St. Charles County, Gov. Nixon earlier today conducted an aerial and ground tour of Meramec State Park in Franklin and Crawford counties, which has been affected by severe flooding.
