So Far the Flood is Not near a Record

The top photo shows the River side of the levee near Columbia.  The bottom photo shows a releif well that is running.  The relief wells are installed to reduce the chances that water pressure will undermine the levees.  The water it is releasing is causing some crop damage.  The forecast is for a 37 foot crest in St. Louis.  That is 12 feet below the 1993 record.
