Drought Exposing Sunken Ships
As the drought across the American south continues, side-effects are becoming readily apparent. The Missouri river is now low enough to expose ships that have been underwater for more than 100 years.
In 1882, the Montana was the largest ship on the Missouri river. The ship struck an underwater tree and though it made it to shore, it never recovered from its injuries.
Under water for 128 years, the ship is now exposed to the air as the Missouri's water level drops. It's not the only shipwreck visible along the shores, but though it is old, it's not one of the more recently visible wrecks. via Archaeology News Network
