AMAZING PHOTOS: The Great Flood Of 93 Returns To St. Louis In 2015

In 1993 the worst flooding of our time covered the Mississippi River Valley and the St. Louis area. Over the Christmas holiday the midwest was covered with a serious rain front and now the city and the rest of the Mississippi Valley area is now covered in water, the likes of which not seen since 1993. See these incredible photos!

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The historic and life threatening flood event continues. This is an incredibly dangerous and life threatening situation with a “State of Emergency” now declared in Missouri.

We saw 5 to as much as 12 inches of rain over the last several days across the FOX 2 News viewing area. Now, historic flooding is underway. Several area rivers will crest higher than record crests of December 1982 and Summer of 1993, including the Bourbeuse River at Union, MO and the Mississippi River at Chester, IL. For the latest river levels and crest information, click here.

Flooding is closing roads and forcing evacuations.  Check here for the latest updates:
