ST. LOUIS (AP) - Flood waters are on the rise at several locations in Missouri.

The National Weather Service reports that the Missouri River is 3 feet to 6 feet above technical flood stage at several points across the state. Damage is mostly limited to rural roads and agricultural land, but the city park in the western Missouri town of Glasgow could flood if the water rises much higher. The river is nearly 7 feet above flood stage at Glasgow.

Other rivers are high, too, the result of recent rains, including the Osage in southwest Missouri and the Meramec near St. Louis. The Mississippi River is near flood stage in St. Louis and a couple of feet above flood stage in Cape Girardeau, but no significant problems are occurring.
