This Year’s Flooding Breaks Record of Days At or Above Flood Stage

Monday marked the 111th consecutive day the Cape Girardeau has been at or above flood stage.  City Officials say, Monday was day 50 of the Mississippi River being at 42 feet or higher, and the daily inspections of the pumps will stop once the river drops below 42 feet. This year’s floods have set a new record for days the city has been above flood stage. The longest Cape Girardeau has been at or above flood stage was 93 total days.
