CLARKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - The rain that's expected from Oklahoma to Michigan through today could bring some stretches of rivers to an even higher crest than had been forecast earlier.
A hydrologist with the National Weather Service says the latest dousing could be especially troubling for communities along the Illinois River, which is headed for record-high crests.
In Clarksville, Mo., on the Mississippi River, a makeshift floodwall of sand and gravel is showing signs of strain, and crews are scrambling to patch trouble spots.
Additional rain could be troublesome in Michigan, too, where the Grand River drove hundreds from their homes in Grand Rapids and flooded downtown.
