ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Water levels are rising again along the Missouri River after recent rains, putting communities already fatigued by the weeks-long flood fight at risk. The National Weather Service is predicting that the river will crest Thursday in St. Joseph at a level that causes parkland and a residential area to flood. In northwest Missouri’s Holt County, emergency management director Tom Bullock says a few people who had moved back home after March’s flooding busted levees were forced out again late Wednesday by rising water. His own home is now unreachable. He says, “The water won’t go away.” In Kansas, flooding waterways forced evacuations and school closures Wednesday. Problems continued Thursday, with a 19-year-old rescued from the roof of her car near Emporia. And the Kansas Turnpike remained closed near the Oklahoma border.
