Firefighters rescue at least three from SUVs stranded on I-64 in flooding

ST. LOUIS – Firefighters rescued at least three people from an SUV stranded on Interstate 64 amid massive flooding from a burst water pipe on Friday afternoon.

A busy section of Interstate 64 flooded in St. Louis during Friday afternoon rush hour due to a burst water main. The freeway is flooded in both directions near Tamm Avenue. Motorists were backed up for several kilometers and traffic was blocked in both directions.

When flooding first struck around 4:15 p.m., some cars attempted to cross the water before police closed the flooded area. Because of this, an SUV got stuck in the flood water.

SkyFOX, operated by Bommarito Automotive Group, spotted firefighters helping at least three people, including a boy, out of an SUV. According to the St. Louis Fire Department, everyone in the car was rescued safely and unharmed.

It’s unclear how quickly the interstate could be cleared given the situation. Motorists are asked to use alternative routes. Firefighters rescue at least three from SUVs stranded on I-64 in flooding
