  Rivers are rising throughout Missouri, and with more rainfall in the forecast, moderate flooding is now expected at several locations.

Both the Missouri and Mississippi rivers are overflowing their banks, due to heavy rain that has settled over the central U.S. over the past several days.

Butch Dye of the National Weather Service office in St. Louis said Monday that more rain is in the forecast for much of southwestern and eastern Missouri through the week. Up to 7 inches of rain could fall by the weekend, potentially making flooding even worse.
