This is the view of the St. Louis riverfront, looking south from the Eads Bridge back on July 3. Flood stage at St. Louis is 30 feet, and the Mississippi River has been running anywhere from 1 to 5 feet above that for several weeks, at times submerging Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard (the street below the Arch). Here the road is about 2 feet under water.

The Mississippi crested at 49.6 feet in St. Louis during the 1993 flood. That's almost 20 feet higher than where the river is in this photo.
