Mississippi River levels mostly going down

Friday, 05 July 2013 09:37 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The latest round of flooding on the Mississippi River is starting to wind down.

 

   Persistent rains since late winter have led to three rounds of flooding on the Mississippi since April. The river has crested at many locations in Iowa, Illinois and Missouri in recent days and is on the way down.

 

   A few places south of St. Louis have not yet seen crests, but the river is expected to reach only slightly above flood stage in towns like Cape Girardeau, Mo., and Chester, Ill.

 

   By Friday, the Mississippi was still more than 4 feet above flood stage in Burlington, Iowa, Quincy, Ill., and Hannibal, Mo., but dropping. No significant problems were occurring.

 

   The river should be within its banks by mid-July.

Friday, 05 July 2013 06:33 Published in Local News

DIXON, Mo. (AP) - One soldier is dead and another was taken to a hospital in serious condition following an ATV accident in south-central Missouri.

 

   The crash happened around 2:30 a.m. Thursday in Pulaski County, a few miles north of the Army's Fort Leonard Wood.

 

   The Missouri Highway Patrol says an all-terrain vehicle driven by 25-year-old Timothy Panzar went airborne, struck a tree, flipped over and landed in the Big Piney River. Panzar and his 33-year-old passenger were thrown into the water.

 

   A spokesman for Fort Leonard Wood told KOLR-TV that both men were currently assigned to the 4th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade.

 

   Panzar was pronounced dead at the scene. The other soldier was flown to a hospital in Springfield.
