Minor flooding, but rain raises worry
ST. LOUIS -- Minor to moderate flooding continues along the Mississippi and Missouri rivers and their tributaries, and rainfall on Thursday wasn't helping.
But National Weather Service hydrologist Mark Fuchs said that barring an unforeseen downpour, major flooding is not in the forecast.
The NAtional Weather Service for weeks has been issuing flood warnings because of heavy snow melt to the north, saturated ground and the fact that rivers have remained higher than normal through the winter.
Mostly minor flooding is occurring from southern Iowa through southern Missouri along the Mississippi River, but few homes or businesses are affected.
The Missouri was flooding in northwest Missouri towns, including St. Joseph. City spokeswoman Mary Robertson said water was at or near about six homes.
