Flood risk warnings have been issued along the Mississippi River in the St. Louis area

ST. LOUIS — Officials are warning of various flood risks along the Mississippi River in the St. Louis area after several days of rain over the weekend.

A flood warning was issued for St. Louis County, St. Louis City and other counties along the Mississippi River through 1 a.m. Monday. The Mississippi is expected to rise to a 30-foot crest Saturday afternoon, but could fall below high water levels by Saturday night.

When the river crest reaches 30 feet, the floodwall at Lacledes Landing closes. In addition, the US Coast Guard can prohibit all recreational boating around the southern entrance of the Chain of Rocks Canal to just below the mouth of the Meramec River.

After more than an inch of rain through Wednesday through Thursday morning, the St. Louis area spent Thursday soaked in water. The persistent rain left large puddles in the streets and quickly filled up streams and creeks.
