CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - American Red Cross staffers from New Hampshire and Vermont are heading to Missouri to help with flooding and storm recovery efforts.

Tracy Smith, of Strafford, New Hampshire, will be going to Springfield, Missouri, to supervise shelters. Steve Tavella, of Dummerston, Vermont will be going to Cape Girardeau in southeastern Missouri to work in shelters.

Heavy rain last weekend resulted in a sudden rise in rivers in Missouri, Illinois and Arkansas. Forecasters expect 2 inches of rain or more in parts of the same areas Wednesday through Thursday.

Missouri has gotten the worst of it so far. At least five people have died in Missouri flooding, and several towns have sustained damage.
