Posted: Updated:

The fast-rising Mississippi River made travel difficult over the weekend.

The Mississippi, Missouri and other Midwestern rivers in at least six states have surged since torrential rains drenched the region over the last few days.

At least two deaths are blamed on flash flooding.

Area residents filled hundred of sandbags to prevent flooded waters from entering their properties.
