Water flowing into the Missouri River is expected to remain lower than usual
National Weather Service hydrologist Mark Fuchs says as many as four inches could fall Friday and Friday night.
In Jefferson City, the river is expected to crest Saturday afternoon at less than a foot above flood stage, a 2.5-foot drop from earlier projections.
National Weather Service said it rained so much so fast that meteorologists immediately switched over to concerns about flooding.
Legislators want to see more focus on flood management and navigation.
The corps expect the navigation system to only be shorten by four days but if the drought deeps navigation season could be shorted by as much as 27 days.
A conservation area in Lincoln County north of St. Louis recorded 7,000 snow geese, with an estimated 15,000 birds in the surrounding area.
Landowners inundated by Missouri River flooding are preparing to sue the U.S. government, saying a recent Supreme Court ruling opens the door for them to receive damages, an attorney said Tuesday.
A suburban Kansas City automobile dealer used personal information from customers and others who filled out credit applications to receive more than $1 million in fraudulent car loans, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster said Tuesday.
Forecasters said rivers would see a dramatic, if temporary, rise over the next few days, with some waterways expected to swell by as much as 15 feet.
