Kimmswick Now Open For Business

KIMMSWICK, MO (KMOX) – Flood waters rushed into Kimmswick earlier this week but now, shop owners say they’re open and ready for a dryer weekend.

Blue Owl owner Mary Hosteter says sandbagging earlier in the week prevented a lot of damage.

“We didn’t even have to have sandbagging yesterday, and now the sun is shinning and the breeze is blowing,” she says. “It’s just a beautiful day in Kimmswick.”

The only place that is still closed is the Picket Fence because of basement flooding.

Hosteter says there was no damage to the Blue Owl and everything will operate normally this weekend.
