ST LOUIS, Mo. - Heavy containers filled with sand line areas along River Des Peres in south St. Louis.

Mayor Lyda Krewson said staff with the city are monitoring the flooding situation around the clock. She said staff are concerned but also prepared.

Crews hope the heavy sandbags will prevent another scene like the one in 1993 when floodwaters burst through the flood protection area.
