The water tower of Big Lake, Mo., is seen Monday beyond the floodwaters and raised railroad tracks. During the next few days, the Missouri River is expected to rise as much as 5 to 7 feet above flood stage in much of Nebraska and Iowa, and as much as 10 feet over flood stage in parts of Missouri. It could stay above flood stage into August. (AP Photo/The St. Joseph News-Press, Jessica Stewart)
