ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — As rivers and creeks in flooded japanese Nebraska and western Iowa crest Saturday, officers have begun wanting downstream at doubtless flooding further south alongside the Missouri River.
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson met with emergency administration staff members Friday to evaluate and replace flood-response plans. The Missouri Highway Patrol is getting ready further gear, and swift water rescue personnel are on standby. The Missouri Nationwide Guard also has briefly relocated the 139th Airlift Wing’s C-130s from Rosecrans Air Nationwide Guard Base in St. Joseph as a precaution.
Some flooding of low-mendacity areas across the river in northwest Missouri had already been reported Saturday.
The Nationwide Weather Service says the Missouri River at St. Joseph reached almost 26 ft on Saturday, a few foot under what’s thought-about main flooding at the northwest Missouri metropolis. However it’s expected to crest Wednesday or Thursday at 29.3 ft — greater than two ft above major flooding degree.
