Flood recedes near St. Louis, but southern states still have fight ahead
Highways in the St. Louis, Missouri area reopened on Friday as water from a rare winter flood began to recede, but states along the Mississippi River to the south may have yet to see the worst of it
The bulge of water, caused by unrelenting rain, swelled up in Missouri and Illinois and is now making its way toward the Gulf of Mexico. It’s likely to cause flooding along the way
More than 20 people have died from the flood so far.
