Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer is encouraging everyone who lives along an area that could flood, later this summer, to be prepared for the possibility that they may have to leave their home. Luetkemeyer says he’s heard between 12 and 50 levees in Missouri could be breached, depending on the severity of flooding. Key ways to prepare include: copy and store important documents in a waterproof bag or container. Take some pictures, for comparison purposes. After a flood, enter structures with caution. Throw out all food, drinks and medicine exposed to flood water, including canned goods. Take pictures.
