Gov. Jay Nixon says Missouri is gearing up for imminent and "unprecedented" flooding along the Missouri River.
Nixon said Thursday in St. Joseph that Missourians will face flooding soon along the Missouri River because of rising water levels in the river basin in the northern Plains. He says people with property and businesses in the floodplain should prepare for "unprecedented high water levels."
