Flood on the Platte River

The flood waters on the Platte River have continued to increase at Farley, Missouri. Compare this picture with the last one from the previous day to see the difference. The crest won't occur in Platte City until sometime Thursday and later than that in Farley, so the water will continue to rise.

Efforts are being made to control the flood waters at Missouri 45 so that the water flows over the bridge instead of into the town of Farley.
