CLARKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) -- Volunteers, the Missouri National Guard and even prison inmates are trying to help the eastern Missouri hamlet of Clarksville battle the surging Mississippi River this morning.
The river is expected to crest tomorrow nearly 11 feet above flood stage at Clarksville, about 60 miles north of St. Louis. The town's 442 residents along with a team of volunteers have built a makeshift levee made of gravel, plastic overlay and sandbags and are now trying to reinforce it.
The National Weather Service is predicting "major" flooding on the Mississippi from the Quad Cities through just north of St. Louis this weekend, with similar projections farther south into early next week. Illinois, Missouri, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin have all had flooding, with dozens of Midwestern rivers well over their banks after a week of heavy rains.
In central Indiana, police are searching for a motorist who vanished along a flooded roadway near the spot where another man died yesterday when floodwaters swept his car away.
