RVers scramble to escape Missouri flood waters

Two levees in St. Charles, Mo., failed on Tuesday, spilling water across the land. The opening at the Elm Point Levee breach continued to grow larger as chunks of the earthen levee collapsed into the rushing water, according to FOX2.

As the waters of the Mississippi River continued to pour forth, several people began to move their belongings to higher ground. The owners of On Wheels Storage put out the call to owners of more than 600 RVs and boats stored on the property. Management estimated people had less than 48 hours from Monday morning before the water would cover the storage lot.

“I’m concerned. I wouldn’t know what to do if we had a flood. We have one vehicle and two big dogs and no way of really getting anything out,” said trailer park resident Keith Menaugh.
