I guess it's good the most compelling story I found today was a couple trying to dry out their basement. Don't get me wrong, a basement covered in backed up sewer water is a horrible thing.
I'm just glad we weren't covering rescues from flood waters or worse... people who chanced it and didn't make it.
I spent parts of the day in Maryland Heights, Creve Coeur and Chesterfield. I saw some closed roads in Maryland Heights, no problems in Creve Coeur and the flooded basement in Chesterfield.
MSD tells me they're responding to about 140 calls for basement back-ups and about 50 calls for flooded streets.
Police dispatchers I talked to today said they had no flood related emergencies.
