Missouri rivers cause flooding
by UPI

LEVASY, Mo. - Tractors and boats were the vehicles of choice in Levasy, Mo., where the Missouri River flooded city streets and houses.

Levasy Mayor Phyllis Dieckmann, who said she had 4 feet of water on her driveway, rode a tractor to City Hall Wednesday.

"We'll probably go home by boat," she told The Kansas City Star.

Officials said the river had breached levees in three places, although it wasn't clear whether the river had cleared the levees or if the levees had broken, the Star reported.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said the Kansas City area appeared to have the highest-rising water, in part because its levees were holding, the Star reported.

In Platte County, floodwaters from the Platte River shut down several highways and roads and made a quarter-mile-wide waterfall on state route 92 in Tracy, the Star reported.

The newspaper said no deaths or injuries had been reported.
