Shelley Powers over at Burningbird has several stories about the aftermath of the Taum Sauk Hydroelectric Plant’s dam burst and subsequent flooding of Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park, along with plenty of photos she took on her trip down to Lesterville. She even provides some links to additional sources. Looks like it’s going to be a long time before the Shut-Ins recover from this flood.
