Floodwaters remain over several area roadways as the Mississippi River water levels continue to fluctuate. As of 7 p.m. Sunday, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers St Louis District Report showed a water level of 41.9 feet. That’s a decrease of 0.2 feet from Saturday but still much higher than the flood stage of 32 feet. The river is forecast to rise again by early today and to crest Thursday morning at 44 feet. Road closures have not changed. Highway 177 north of Cape Girardeau remains closed because of floodwaters, as are South Kingshighway near the Diversion Channel and Route E between Benton and Commerce. If predictions prove accurate, the flood’s crest would make it the 10th-highest water mark in Cape Girardeau recorded history. That level is held by the flood of 1943, which reached 42.40 feet in May. The all-time record is 48.49 feet on Aug. 8, 1993.
