If you have not seen some of the pics of the Mississippi River in SE Missouri, it is high! Robert Foote, a photographer from KFVS snapped this pic this morning in Cape Girardeau, where the water has risen 2 feet since Saturday morning:
The river level there is considered "major flood stage" and it is still rising. See graph:
Notice in the above image that the river will be about 5 feet higher this weekend. This is only considered minor flooding, so no need to worry too much at this time.
A little farther south, the river forecast is similar in Osceola. It's rising, but we are not too worried, at this time:
While the river stage forecasts are not overly alarming at this time, we will continue to watch them over the next week or so.
Have a great day!
