Photo: Mississippi Missouri Islands – Flying out of Omaha today we flew over the Mississippi Missouri that overflows into Iowa.

The Mississippi Missouri takes back some land in Iowa.  Many stranded spots and covered roads in its path. Omaha was also prepared with sandbags piled up to try to fend off the waters.

Edit: My mistake that I thought the pilot said it was the Mississippi when it was actually the Missouri river.  Thanks for the correction.  Still not a situation I’d want to experience. News on DesMoinesRegister.com.
