Massive river flood in the central United States to continue for weeks



The flood catastrophe, which continues to unfold over the central United States, is likely to continue in April, with more communities and agricultural land being exposed.

The disaster was launched in the second week of March, when a "bomb cyclone" hit the region, fell sharply and triggered massive snow melting, leading to excess runoff in rivers and waterways.

The flood has led to more death, the evacuation of a whole city in Missouri and over $ 1 billion

More lives and property will be threatened by rising water levels in the coming days and weeks.

"River and stream flood will continue over much of the center to the upper Mississippi Valley, Corn Belt and parts of the Central Plains right into April," said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Jack Boston.

While rivers are returning over the most severely affected areas in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa, water drainage downstream leads to the Missouri River rising across northeastern Kansas and Missouri.

Missouri River in Rulo, Nebraska, hit a record 28.14 foot late Wednesday, exceeding the previous high mark of 27.26 feet in June 27, 2011.

Later downstream at Atchison, Kansas, The rise of the river's water level and will close to the record match of 31.63 feet this weekend, according to hydrologists at the National Weather Service.

The flood of water will cause modest increases over the balance of the river in Missouri, with a smaller to moderate flood forecast continuing into next week.

Meanwhile, the tip of the Mississippi River remains at various flood stages.

The water level is falling south of the Mississippi River's confluence with the Ohio River. However, water rises are expected further north, as runoff from an impressive snowpack enters the basin.

There are 2-10 inch water blocked in the snow cover over the northern part of the central states, according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

Mississippi River in St. Paul, Minnesota, is expected to reach a major river phase in late March.

"It is possible that many parts of the Mississippi River will remain above the flood stage throughout the spring and into the first part of the summer in the slow natural disaster," Sosnowski says.

The flood is likely to occur even if the snow report is not accompanied by one or more penetrating rain events.

Motorists are reminded never to drive through floodwaters or around barricades marking a flooded, closed road. Instead, turn around and find a safer alternative way.

In the short term, no major storms are expected to roll through the country's midsection.

 weekend outlook 3.21 AM

A system that will spark thunderstorms across the southern plains on Friday will bring some rain to Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Iowa this weekend.

Although no heavy rain is expected with this event, some wet weather is unwelcome at this time.

There may be another major storm rolling through the central US with rain during the latter half of next week.
