USGS Photo Gallery of Taum Sauk Disaster

The USGS has a page devoted to the Taum Sauk disaster.

The page created by the Mid-Continent Geographic Science Center in Rolla has photo galleries showing devastation around the mountain, down the Black River valley and at Johnson Shut Ins. The pictures evoke images of volcanic mudflows in how the flood stripped the ground to the rocks/

Meanwhile according to the Daily Journal
Three-year-old Tara Toops and her 7-month-old brother Tucker were discharged from Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, hospital spokesman Bob Davidson said. Another sibling, 5-year-old Tanner, remains in critical condition at the hospital.

A trust fund has been set up for the park superintendent’s family at First State Community Bank.

Cash donations can be made there. Other donations may be handled by calling Rodney at 573-546-7233 or 701-7901.
