Mississippi River flood waters
Flood waters have been receding in the region – river levels rose throughout the area following recent heavy rainfall.
Flood conditions have been occurring along both the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. Flooding also has occurred on numerous tributaries of both of those major rivers.
