Homes Flood As Missouri River Breaches Levees

KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) — Hundreds of homes flooded in several Midwestern states after rivers breached at least a dozen levees following heavy rain and snowmelt in the region, authorities said Monday while warning that the flooding was expected to linger. About 200 miles of levees were compromised – either breached or overtopped – in four states, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said. Even in places where the water level peaked in those states – Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, and Kansas – the current was fast and the water so high that damage continued to pile up. The flooding has been blamed for at least three deaths so far.
