The Missouri River Flooding In Pictures

22 06 2011

The Missouri River flooding is getting worse.

Flood water crest more and more levees.

The US Corps of Engineer had released water from dams along the river.

And in some place the levees were ruptured causing more water to flood the homes and farms.

This is another U.S. flood disaster after the very bad Mississippi River flooding last month.
