ST. LOUIS — Farmland and rural roads are under water at several locations around Missouri as late-spring rains have pushed rivers beyond their banks.
Flooding was mostly minor, but thousands of acres of farmland were under water.
Blackwater River near Valley City in north-central Missouri was five feet above flood stage on Tuesday but expected to drop below flood stage within a day or so. Big Creek near Blairstown and the Grand River near Sumner, also in north-central Missouri, were slightly flooding.
Portions of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers were at or near flood stage, but no significant damage was occurring or expected.
