    Wow KCLady. It seems like every 3 years or so, the Ohio, Missouri and Mississippi rivers have this problem.

    Stay Dry Out There!

    Speaking of dry. We are FINALLY under a high pressure system and we will be in the 80's, no clouds and bright sunshine for at least the next week.

    Spring Fever is really hitting everyone hard now.

    Flooding continues due to broken levees

    Evacuations, Sandbagging in Effect
    By HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH, Associated Press Writer

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Flood water topped at least 20 levees protecting low-lying communities along the Missouri River and other nearby streams, authorities said Wednesday.

    Stretches of highway have been closed and thousands of people have been evacuated because of flooding caused by a large weekend storm system that also devastated Greensburg, Kan., with a deadly tornado.

    "It's a major flood," said National Weather Service meteorologist Suzanne Fortin. "It won't be a record breaker, but it will be in the top three."

    Missouri Highway Patrol troopers were working 24-hour shifts near the village of Big Lake, which was inundated after nine levee breaks, said Lt. John Hotz.

    Two levees were topped by high water during the night, authorities said. In Levacy, water from the Missouri River had started to encroach on the town and evacuations were under way Wednesday, Fortin said.

    Big Lake, on the Missouri River about 95 miles northwest of Kansas City, was inundated Tuesday.

    "The town is a loss. At this time, we don't know, but it looks like that's what's going to happen," Mark Sitherwood, presiding commissioner of Holt County, said Tuesday.

    Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt declared a state of emergency and mobilized National Guard troops to help. At least 19 Kansas counties declared local disaster emergencies.

    Two-thirds of the town of Mosby, 20 miles northeast of Kansas City, was under 2 to 4 feet of water Tuesday from the overflowing Fishing River, said D.C. Rogers, Clay County director of emergency services.

    Parts of Missouri, Iowa and Kansas received as much as 8 inches of rain in a 24-hour period during the weekend thunderstorms, the weather service said.

    Flooding in Oklahoma was blamed for the drowning death of a man whose car was swept off a county road. A Kansas man died when his vehicle overturned in a water-filled ditch near Wichita, Butler County officials said.

    High water had begun to recede in flooded parts of western Iowa.

    I don't think we've had any measurable percipitation here this year, maybe less than a 10th of an inch.

    We have had several days over 100°. I hope that's not a sign of the summer we're in store for here.

    Hope no tornado's come and that all are safe and sound.
