U.S. Midwest braces for more flooding as rain-swollen rivers rise

Missouri and Illinois were bracing for more flooding on Thursday as rain-swollen rivers, some at record heights, overflowed their banks, washing out hundreds of structures and leaving thousands of people displaced from their homes.

Safety first, everyone. Please keep yourself and your children away from the water’s edge!

Thinking of family and friends in the St. Louis area affected by this. I lived there when they had the Great Flood of 1993.

So many weather tragedies, and they’re becoming greater in number and closer together.
