Missouri Governor Nixon has declared a state of emergency to deal with last week’s heavy rains and this weekend’s rising rivers.
Friday, Nixon activated the Missouri National Guard, sending troops to Clarksville and other Mississippi River towns in need of sandbag help.
Nixon also activated the Missouri State Emergency Operations Plan.  That allows state agencies to better coordinate with local jurisdictions for emergency services.
