Mississippi River levels mostly going down

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The latest round of flooding on the Mississippi River is starting to wind down.

 

   Persistent rains since late winter have led to three rounds of flooding on the Mississippi since April. The river has crested at many locations in Iowa, Illinois and Missouri in recent days and is on the way down.

 

   A few places south of St. Louis have not yet seen crests, but the river is expected to reach only slightly above flood stage in towns like Cape Girardeau, Mo., and Chester, Ill.

 

   By Friday, the Mississippi was still more than 4 feet above flood stage in Burlington, Iowa, Quincy, Ill., and Hannibal, Mo., but dropping. No significant problems were occurring.

 

   The river should be within its banks by mid-July.
