Flood Warnings Continue Along the Mississippi River

Flood warnings have been posted along northeast Missouri and western Illinois’ stretch of the Mississippi River.

River stages as of early Tuesday morning are above flood stage, but forecasts are not calling for anything other than minor flooding. Of course, those forecasts are subject to change, depending on rainfall here and to the north of the Hannibal/Quincy area.
