Graves Receives Update on Mississippi River Flooding

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Congressman Sam Graves (MO-06) received an update on the status of flooding in towns along the Mississippi River during a conference call with local officials, business owners, and farmers today. Representatives from Clark, Lewis, Marion, Ralls, and Pike counties, including Clarksville mayor Jo Anne Smiley, assessed current damage estimates in their regions and discussed their ongoing efforts to shield local communities, businesses, and farmland from additional flooding. A representative from MODOT also discussed current road closures, including Hwy 61 in Alexandria; the Quincy Memorial Bridge; Route 54 near Louisiana; and Route 79, which is closed in various spots between Hannibal and St. Louis.

"I thank everyone who participated in today's conference call," said Congressman Graves. "My goal was to listen to folks in the eastern counties of the district regarding the situation along the Mississippi River, and I hope they will continue to keep me and my office informed. When we see what the damage looks like after the waters recede, I will get to work on securing any funding necessary to help these communities fully recover."
