Mississippi River expected to crest Monday on the St. Louis Riverfront

Flood-Swollen Mississippi River Closed to Shipping at St. Louis -U.S. Coast Guard Mississippi River rising in Iowa

The river has already crested at numerous hardest-hit towns, but the wet forecast is a concern.

The flooding Mississippi River is inundating farmland and forcing people from their homes as high water levels make their way downstream.

That record is no more.

The U.S. Coast Guard said it closed the Mississippi River near St. Louis to boat and barge traffic on Friday as excessive rains and heavy snowmelt this spring swelled the major shipping waterway to near-record levels.

Mark Fuchs, a National Weather Service hydrologist, warned that there is nowhere for any additional rain to go and that he's especially concerned about the potential for a new rise in the Missouri River, including in parts of Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and northwestern Missouri that were flooded in late March.

The Mississippi and Missouri rivers and their tributaries are already flooding, causing levee breaches and evacuations.

The flood-ravaged Midwest doesn't need more rain, but it may get it anyway.

The bulging MS tore through a levee in St. Charles County, near St. Louis, forcing evacuations.

Several city blocks in Davenport, Iowa, remain flooded almost a week after the swollen Mississippi River broke through a temporary barrier, sending water rushing into the city's downtown.

Joe Gauthier told CNN affiliate WHBF last week he just happened to be looking out a window from his downtown loft Tuesday when the water started rushing into the streets.
