River levels in mid-Missouri are rising again.

According to the National Weather Service, the Missouri River at Boonville is expected to increase to 30 feet — moderate flood stage — by Tuesday night. Major flood stage for Boonville is 34 feet.

Near Jefferson City, the river level is expected to increase to 30 feet — major flood stage — by Thursday morning, according to the weather service.

On Friday, the river levels in both areas had been about 25 feet, but they’ve been increasing since.

However, the weather service predicts the river levels will decrease by about 10 feet by this weekend.

Missouri has been dealing with flooding for more than a month. People along the river have had to evacuate, some being forced into Red Cross shelters.

Boonville’s flood warning lasts until July 6, according to the weather service.

At these river levels, the levees around Jefferson City could possibly be topped, according to the weather service.
