March 7, 2011 - William Clark seems to be signaling for help as his famous traveling partner Meriwether Lewis disappears beneath the surface of the swelling Mississippi River on the St. Louis riverfront. Their dog depicted in the statue entitled "The Captains Return" has long since been subsumed by the snowmelt-fueled rise.  "Moderate to major" flooding is expected along the Mississippi later this spring, especially if it's an unusually wet spring.  (KMOX/Brett Blume)
