CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - The Mississippi River has fallen below minor flood stage for the first time since Oct. 3.
This drop may be tempered by runoff from this week’s rainfall and the expected runoff from rain and snow upstream of Cape Girardeau during the first few days of November,
This year has been interesting for commercial river interests and those who live in or near the Mississippi River basin with periods of flooding throughout the year.
The National Weather Service of Paducah hopes a more tranquil trend in falling water levels will continue later in the month of November.
