Floodwaters continue to rise in Missouri, where officials warn the swollen rivers could overflow federal levees. Hundreds of families are evacuating communities around the fast-rising Meramec River. The Mississippi River has also surged to near-record levels. It’s expected to reach nearly 13 feet above flood stage in St. Louis today. In the last week, flooding across Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas and Oklahoma has killed at least 24 people.
