Mark Kloeppel of S&K Roofing cleans out a storage unit Wednesday where the company stores materials used in the company’s work. Water was rising rapidly out of the banks of the Maries River in Westphalia, enough so that MoDOT closed the roadway. By the time Kloeppel and others removed the items, water was already over the roadway used to exit the units. Flooding on the Maries River ended Thursday.
