Flooding In Missouri

Missouri Governor Parsons Issues Flood Warnings........

 

While heavy rainfall and snowmelt have forced rivers and creeks out of their banks across Nebraska, Kansas and Iowa, Missouri Governor Mike Parson is warning residents to be cautious around floodwaters as they approach major flood stage.

 

Parson says that Missourians must stay alert and exercise caution around flooded areas, and advises residents to stay off flooded roadways, no matter how low the water appears to be.

 

The Missouri and Mississippi Rivers are expected to crest this week, however, Parson warns that the flooding may remain a danger well into the spring........

Missouri River Flooding

Midwestern States........

 

Officials report that several hundreds of homes have flooded across several Midwestern states, as rivers have breached at least a dozen levees after snowmelt and heavy rainfall inundate the region.

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers stated that approximately 200 miles of levees have been either breached or overtopped across four states.

 

The current was so fast and so high, even in places where the Missouri River had crested, that damage continued to accumulate.  So far, the flooding has caused at least three deaths........

Mississippi River At Clarksville, Missouri

Clarksville Mayor Hopeful Temp Floodwall Will Protect City........

 

As of Monday evening, there is historic flooding across the Midwest, and governors in Iowa, Nebraska and Wisconsin have declared states of emergency.

 

Cities along the Mississippi River have been alerted that there may be potentially devastating flooding occurring over the next three months.

 

Residents of Clarksville, Missouri have been constructing a temporary floodwall intended to protect the city.  Jo Anne Smiley, Mayor of Clarksville, notes that flooding has been hard on the city over the years.  Over half of the businesses have left the city after owners grew tired of frequent flooding........

Mississippi River Near Ste. Genevieve, Missouri

City Prepping For Coming Floods........

 

As the rivers rise across the Heartland, cities are preparing for the worst.  Currently, the Mississippi River at the Chester Bridge has risen above 33 feet, and is forecast to peak at 35.9 feet.

 

Cape Girardeau's two main floodgates are already closed, and Stan Polivick, the Public Works Director, expects that they will be closing the railroad floodgate close to the Red Star Boat Ramp on Wednesday.

 

The Ste. Genevieve City officials are planning on closing the city's four floodgates sometime Wednesday as well.  According to Public Works Director Gary Roth, the flooding forecast could get worse if warmer spring weather arrives in the North........

Carlyle Lake

Christmas Tree Recycling Project Rescheduled........

 

Thanks to poor weather conditions, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Carlyle Lake have rescheduled their annual spring Christmas tree recycling/fish habitat improvement project to Saturday, March 23, 2019, starting at 8:30 am.

 

The Corps has amassed more than 500 Christmas trees that were discarded after the holiday season.  They will be used to create fish reef structures in Carlyle Lake, which will give fish breeding areas and cover for juvenile fish.

 

The structures will encourage the growth of algae and zooplankton, which are two major sources of food for young fish. The recycled Christmas trees are a cheap and effective means of creating fish habitat........

News Release From BoatUS



SAVANNAH, Ga., March 18, 2019 – Want to learn the basics of powerboating or brush up on your skills? The nonprofit BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water together with Freedom Boat Club Savannah offer a choice of two fun on-water boat training courses taught aboard single-engine powerboats: Intro to Boating and Women Making Waves, Saturday, April 6, and Sunday, April 7, at the club’s location at 2812 River Drive, Savannah.
Both the Intro to Boating and Women Making Waves courses are three hours long and affordably priced at $149 per person. Intro to Boating covers shifting and steering, basic docking, open-water handling and basic navigation, and is offered both days at 9 a.m.
The ladies-only course, Women Making Waves, offers the same curriculum and is the perfect opportunity to spend a half-day learning boat-handling techniques in a supportive environment. It’s offered both days at 9:30 a.m.
Class size is limited to four students per vessel, ensuring each student gets sufficient time at the helm under the watchful eye of a U.S. Coast Guard-certified instructor.
The goal of the BoatUS Foundation and Freedom Boat Club Savannah courses is to address the high costs typically associated with at-the-helm training, making hands-on boating education more accessible. The courses also offer area residents the chance to try out recreational boating and give boaters the opportunity to brush up on their boat-handling skills.
Space is limited. Must be 21 years or older. To sign up for a course or seek out others, go to BoatUS.org/On-Water.
