The water level in the Missouri River continues to rise

The water level in the Missouri River continues to rise. On Sunday, Nebraska authorities warned residents about the possible effects of water coming to the local nuclear power plant, located in the southeast of the state.
On Saturday night in Holt and Atchison counties water broke through a dam, flooding some farmland, numerous homes and buildings. At the same time every hour hole in the dam continues to rise, say engineers, and water threatens to flood the park and recreation area located in Big Lake 125 kilometers from a major metropolis — Kansas City (Missouri). Currently, due to flooding, the authorities had to block the federal highway that passes through the Big Lake. Local residents were evacuated.
Near the town of Manchester (Missouri) the water level in the river has exceeded record levels and is 14 meters. Residents of houses near the dam, located in Manchester, also evacuated, and as they began to form holes.
The main reason for such a large raise the level of the Missouri River — the largest tributary of Mississippi — have spring rains, which have failed drains. As a result, the water went into the basin. According to the forecasts of meteorologists, flood situation in the basin of Missouri will continue until the middle of July and the end of summer, the water level will be kept at a high elevation, the ITAR-TASS news agency.
