The only other news event to attract coverage from correspondents on all three networks was a follow-up on yesterday's Story of the Day, the cresting floods of the rivers in the Missouri suburbs of St Louis. All three reporters were checking on the Meramec River, NBC's Ron Mott in Fenton Mo and ABC's Eric Horng and CBS' Hari Sreenivasan upstream from him in Pacific Mo. Horng saw waters rising overnight at the rate of six inches an hour. Mott worried about a low lying intersection in Interstate 44 that floods may close. Sreenivasan worried about the town of Valley Park and its newly finished $50m levee. The structure is designed to protect against 45 foot floods; the crest is forecast for 40 feet: "That is cutting it pretty close."
