CSW BREAKING: Another Missouri River Levee Break in Northwest Missouri
This time a levee near the tiny Holt County MO community of Fortescue has been breeched.
The National Weather Service office in Pleasant Hill (NWS-EAX) issued a Flash Flood Warning within the past hour because of this levee break- which threatens to cutoff even more roadways northwest of St. Joseph and has forced even more evacuations of area residents.
Additionally- more rain is forecast beginning Friday (tomorrow)- and will continue off and on through the weekend into early next week.
