GLASGOW, Missouri — Water levels are expected to begin falling soon along several Missouri waterways after a recent round of heavy rain caused flooding.

The heaviest flooding occurred Sunday in the northwestern town of Mosby after the Fishing River overran its banks. Nearly three dozen homes took on water.

Along the Missouri River, water levels mostly crested Monday and Tuesday in the state. The National Weather Service is reporting minor flooding in several towns along the river, including Waverly, Sibley and Napoleon. Moderate flooding was reported near the town of Glasgow after the Missouri River crested Tuesday morning at 3 feet above flood stage.

Minor to moderate flooding also was reported along the Grand and Platte rivers.

Meteorologists say Western Missouri received up to 6 inches of rain late Saturday and early Sunday.
