This page is a work in progress, as I'm still compiling video and images after several days of covering this event.

Animated GIF showing the progression of the Meramec River's historic flooding of the Highway 141/Interstate 44 interchange in Valley Park on Monday night (28th), Tuesday (29th) and Wednesday (30th):


Since I work in the capacity of a news cameraman, these videos have a more comprehensive selection of shots than I have in still images. These are the actual raw cuts of the videos I fed out to the networks.
