Flooding along the upper Mississippi River is affecting navigation, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
"High river levels have forced us to close two of our locks and dams. Lock and Dam 24 and 25 are both closed right now," said Mike Peterson, chief of public affairs.
"But there’s not a lot of river navigation going on along the upper river right now because upstream of us there is a whole lot of closed locks and dams."
Flood crests on the Mississippi are expected over the next week, but Peterson is not expecting much higher levels.
