The river is expected to crest at just above 26 feet on Tuesday afternoon.

At that height, the National Weather Service reports a levee protecting the village of McBaine could be breached, and some roads in Ashland could also flood.

In Boonville, the river is expected to crest on Thursday at approximately 26 and a half feet. At that level, numerous farm levees are topped, and flooding of agricultural land and secondary roads occur.

Governor Mike Parson is urging Missourians in flood prone areas to pay close attention to flooding updates.
