Photo detail

Water from Lake of the Ozarks rapidly flows into the Osage River when all 12 floodgates of Bagnell Dam are partially opened. The photo was taken in August after a 10-inch rainfall caused flash flooding in local rivers and creeks. An emergency drill put on by Ameren last week was in response to a similar, but worse, situation.
