As the City of Hannibal continues clean up from severe storms that tore through the area on Monday night, downtown Hannibal took another step towards normalcy on Wednesday when the flood walls along the riverfront were removed. They had been in place since for over a month

With the removal of the flood walls, traffic now has access to the riverfront from Broadway and Center Streets, and the flood buyout area on South Main Street, where several residents are dropping off debris from Monday night's storm, is accessible via Main Street.

The Mark Twain Riverboat, which had been docked for several weeks  will return to its normal location at the foot of Center Street beginning on Thursday. The riverboat had been  cruising from its high water landing on River Road.
