High water in central Missouri

Route 66 bridge, Hazelgreen, Mo.

This stunning video shows the flooding that was occurring yesterday in the central Missouri towns of Jerome, Devil’s Elbow and Hazelgreen.

The video, with the help of a drone, includes a lot of footage of the closed Route 66 bridge, aka the Gasconade River Bridge, near Hazelgreen.

Route 66 fans are hoping the bridge can hold up through the onslaught. The water still was rising today in many areas.

Rivers in Kansas and Oklahoma also are seeing near-record highs.

  1. I hope this bridge is able to withstand the flood from Mother Nature. I drove over it back in 2009 one one of my road trips across Route 66. I’m glad I was able to experience it before something happened to it.
