ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) -  Low levels on the Mississippi River are giving vandals easy access to the USS Inaugural minesweeping ship. The ship sunk in the flood of 1993 but recently surfaced because of persistent drought conditions impacting the river. 

Even though the Army Corps of Engineers warns against walking along the riverfront, that did not stop vandals from spray painting elaborate graffiti on the ship. Police have not arrested anyone in connection with the crime.
