The confluence of Mississippi and Ohio The confluence of Mississippi and Ohio
CAIRO, IL (KFVS) -

Scattered clouds are between the American Airline plane and the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers on Thursday.  The American Airlines flight was traveling between Charlotte, North Carolina and St. Louis when it passed over the Cape Girardeau area.  The mouth of the Ohio is much wider and looks a little green as it flows into the muddy water of the Mississippi.  The rivers are slowly returning to their banks after being above flood stage for the previous month.
