MO River forecast

PARKVILLE, MO (KCTV) -- Flooding remains a major concern for areas along the Missouri River in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska.

Authorities up and down the Missouri River are watching as water levels continue to rise.

English Landing Park is just one example where they're seeing concerns. This park is closed until further notice.

The Missouri River could remain at or near record levels for most of the week. The river is expected to reach major flooding stage sometime Tuesday evening.

Up the road in Aitchison, KS, some people who live in low areas have already had to evacuated.

Many volunteers have already been out filling sandbags for the Sugar Creek Levy District which stretches from Rushville, MO, to the Platte County line.

The United Way of greater St. Joseph is still looking for volunteers to help with sandbagging efforts.
