More rain expected for already swollen rivers across the Midwest
CLARKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) — Communities along the Mississippi River and other Midwestern waterways eyed and in some cases fortified makeshift levees holding back floodwaters that meteorologists said could worsen or be prolonged by looming storms.
Overnight rain from Oklahoma to Michigan led the National Weather Service to heighten the forecast crest of some stretches of rivers while blunting the retreat of other waterways.
Mark Fuchs, a National Weather Service hydrologist, said the latest dousing could be especially troublesome for towns along the Illinois River, which is headed for record crests.
