Historic Flood of 2011 - Aerial Imagery Maps
The Historic Flood of 2011 prompted unprecedented flows out of the Missouri River mainstem dams. Flows from Fort Randall Dam and Gavins Point Dam both peaked around 160,000 cfs (this does include tributary inputs). These flows are the greatest on record since the dams were completed in the 1950s. The flows far surpassed the previous record of 70,000 cfs set in 1997.

This series of aerial imagery from Fort Randall Dam to Sioux City, Iowa (excluding Lewis and Clark Lake) was taken in mid to late July at the height of flooding.
