Report issued by National Weather Service
The National Weather Service says there's a normal to above average risk of flooding on the Mississippi River this spring.
That analysis was issued Thursday by the Weather Service, which says that feeder streams in the upper Mississippi River basin are flowing well above average for mid-February. They say that means the flow into the Mississippi River is also running well above the seasonal average. The Weather Service says the threat of minor flooding from Winfield, in Lincoln County to above Canton will remain high this spring.
The Weather Service says that the risk of Spring flooding on the Illinois River will be normal. They also say that the risk of flooding for smaller rivers in Northeast Missouri, such as the North River, and the Fabius rivers are low.
