Missouri River Flooding in Pierre, S.D.

Detailed Description

Runoff due to recent wide-scale rainfall in South Dakota has led to very high streamflows for local Missouri River tributaries, according to several U.S. Geological Survey streamflow gages. In this photo of Pierre, S.D., the State Capitol can be seen in the background, a sign for "Capitol City" is in standing water on the far left, and the flagpole, which is near the VFW, is surrounded by temporary levees.
