Missouri confronts historic flooding

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Residents and authorities in Holt County, Missouri, continue to deal with massive flooding that has destroyed homes and prompted evacuation orders.

Floodwaters breached a makeshift levee in the small town of Craig, Missouri on Wednesday as most of the town was evacuated.

As icy, lethal flood waters fed by rains and melting snow recede in Nebraska and Iowa, leaving destroyed homes, drowned cattle and swamped farmland, Midwest states downstream were set on Thursday for a relentless surge of the Missouri River.

Flooding from last week's storm has already caused nearly $1.5 billion in damage in Nebraska, killed at least four people with another missing.

"This isn't over," said David Roth, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center.

"The river will have several more major crests through next week," he said, not counting the numerous tributaries that feed into the Missouri up and down the Midwest and will likely inundate communities into next month.

The waters have already swamped a large swath of Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa along North America's longest river.

A state of emergency has been declared in all or parts of the three Midwestern farm states "We're going to get some moderate rain this weekend over eastern Nebraska, maybe a half inch (1.3 cm)," Roth said.

"It doesn't sound like much, but any more precipitation is bad." The Missouri River's next major flood crest is forecast to hit St.

Joseph, Missouri, at 6 a.m.

On Friday and a day later in Kansas City, Missouri, 55 miles (90 km) to the south, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
