Caption: Flooding on the Mississippi River, 1909. Flooded road with horse-drawn shoe wagons, in the town of St Louis, Missouri, USA, in 1909. St Louis lies on the Mississippi River, about halfway between the river's source and mouth. The Mississippi, one of the longest rivers in the USA, flows over 3700 kilometres north to south across the USA. It has the third largest drainage basin in the world, and heavy rainfall can cause massive flooding further downstream. Some of the worse floods in the USA have occurred on the Mississippi River, including the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927.
