River town businesses hurt by flood fear

Here are some photos from the story I wrote on how the perception of flooding in Missouri river towns is  detrimental to business.

Roscoe Robinson and Travis Brobst sit in the Trailside Cafe & Bike Shop after biking the Katy Trail in Rocheport on Tuesday, July 19, 2011. The perception of flooding has been detrimental to business, and owner Larry Horning is worried the shop may go under.

 Nancy Lewis looks at a product catalog with salesman Ron Eggleson at White Horse Antiques in Rocheport on Thursday, July 21, 2011. Several Rocheport businesses have lost revenue since news of flooding began.
Gary Smith, treasurer of the Rocheport Area Merchants Association, works at his store, Two Sisters and Me, in Rocheport on Thursday, July 21, 2011. Since news of flooding began, Smith has had an estimated 45 percent decrease in revenue at Two Sisters and Me
