This Saturday, April 20, 2013, photo, provided by the Missouri Department of Public Safety shows flooding in LaGrange, Mo. The Mississippi River is topping out at some problematic spots, but there is growing concern that spring floods are far from over. The river was at or near crest at several places Sunday, April 21, 2013 between the Quad Cities and near St. Louis. Some towns in the approximate 100-mile stretch of river from Quincy, Ill., to Grafton, Ill., reached 10-12 feet above flood stage. (AP Photo/Missouri Department of Public Safety)
