Flooding in Nauvoo

Here are the latest pictures from Nauvoo. These are provided by the Steen family who were recently interviewed on our local Channel 4 news with their report of conditions in Nauvoo. You can see all of their pictures of Nauvoo area flooding at
The first pic is of the road between Nauvoo and Keokuk. The original paved road has been overlayed with gravel to raise it three feet and keep it above the water. The second is of the Nauvoo House, the only structure in Nauvoo which is in jeopardy at all. You can see the sandbag re-enforced earthen dike and the water which is seeping through it.
