Major flooding occurred along the Mississippi River in June 2019. However, river levels were above flood stage from March through early August due to relentless heavy rain that occurred over our region and locations upstream to our north and west. Cape Girardeau, MO spent 145 days above flood stage and the majority of this time was spent above the moderate flood stage level. Cape Girardeau experienced their 5th highest crest on record, only two and a half feet below the record set back in January 2016.
