Mississippi River At Clarksville, Missouri

Clarksville  Prepping For Potentially Historic Flooding........


The tiny town of Clarksville, Missouri is preparing for the possibility of record-setting flooding, primarily due to an unusually snowy winter to the north.


Back in 2008, floodwaters inundated Clarksville, destroying portions of the town.  Resident Abby Palmer said that the flooding was the worst she had seen, and it had damaged many shops and homes.


So far, Palmer and other volunteers have been building a floodwall using some 1,500 tons of rock and plenty of sand bags, which will protect about two blocks of the Clarksville downtown area........

Environmentalists:  Stop Dying The River Green........


There is a tradition in Chicago, Illinois of dying the Chicago River green as part of the city's St. Patrick's Day celebration.  There are some environmentalists, however, that want the river-dying tradition to end.


According to Margaret Frisbie, the executive director if the 6,000 member nonprofit Friends of the Chicago River, the Chicago River is healthier that it has been in 150 years, so it might be a good idea to end the 55-plus year old tradition.


The annual tradition began in 1962, which was well before laws were enacted to protect waterways from pollutants.  These days, the Chicago Journeyman Plumbers, Local 130 use what they claim is an environmentally friendly vegetable-based dye to turn the Chicago River bright green........

In addition to the river closure, the Coast Guard has set a no wake zone for any vessel on the Missouri River between St. Joseph and Kansas City to minimize any damage to levees.

Flood Safety Awareness....


Each year, more deaths occur due to flooding than from any other severe weather related hazard. The main reason is people underestimate the force and power of water. More than half of all flood related deaths result from vehicles being swept downstream. Of these, many are preventable.

Mississippi River In The Riverbend

Officials Keeping Tabs On The River........


Local officials, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the National Weather Service are keeping an eye on the Mississippi River, as heavy rainfall and heavy snow pack in the north will push local rivers out of their banks.


According to Mark Fuchs,  a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, the rivers in the Riverbend region will be running high for the better part of the spring.


The Mississippi River at Alton and Grafton will be expected to crest a week from Saturday.  The Mississippi River at Grafton is expected to creep into the moderate flooding range, but likely won't significantly affect roads in town........
