Highway 79 just south of Hannibal became another victim of the 2013 flood. MoDOT closed Mo. 79 Friday afternoon, just past the entrance to the Mark Twain Cave. Drivers needing to travel south from Hannibal on MO 79 will need to detour to Routes T and N or use Route V in New London until further notice.

The photo gallery contains pictures of  Highway 79, Sawyer's Creek, the Hannibal riverfront from Lover's Leap, the Admiral Coontz Armory and Clemens Field in downtown Hannibal.
