Mississippi River flooding
ST. LOUIS -

Midwestern rivers, including the Mississippi, are rising again after another round of heavy rain.

Parts of North Dakota got up to 8 inches of rain Tuesday night through Wednesday morning, and parts of Iowa got 7 inches. Other states from Wisconsin to Missouri were soaked as well.

The National Weather Service projects the Mississippi River will reach well above flood stage from Iowa south to about St. Louis. Some flood-weary towns like Clarksville, Missouri and Grafton, Illinois are sandbagging in preparation for the third significant flood since April.

Smaller rivers are flooding as well. The Waspinicon River that flows through northeastern Iowa could reach a record level at the small town of Independence.
