~ The Flood of 2011 ~


Again, Heavy Rains last Summer ~ Heavy Snows Last Winter ~ Filled the Upriver Reservoirs to Overflowing ~
Then Heavy Snow Melt and Spring Rains made the Situation Worse
The U.S.Corps of Engineers then began Releasing Water from the Upstream Dams adding to the already Flooded Missouri River
Here was the Situation in Parkville, Missouri Starting in June, 2011
