The flood advisory issued last week was extended early Tuesday morning for many rivers in MI as April weather brings spring flooding to the state.

Flooding is not expected to be a major issue, with most spots along the river seeing minor flooding - just 1-2′ above flood stage.

In Augusta, the river will rise to 14.5 feet by Wednesday afternoon.

At 8:30 p.m. Monday, the Mississippi River's stage at Cape Girardeau was 34.7 feet. High-water levels in these river basins caused road, basement and parking-lot flooding. Water will be up to the edge of Front Street in Hallowell.
