Heavy rains from recent storms has caused flooding across the Heartland and more concern for additional flooding.
The National Weather Service held a press conference Sunday evening explaining the some of the dangers of more rainfall.
The NWS forecast of four to nine additional inches of rain throughout the week causes great concern for additional flash flooding and eventually major river flooding that is rarely seen in the region.
The high rainfall totals and predicted rainfall totals for the rest of the week have "set the stage for potentially catastrophic flooding," according to Rick Shanklin with the National Weather Service.
"We are very concerned about the potential loss of life through this event, especially tonight (Sunday) and beyond," Shanklin said.
He says it is extremely important people do not drive through flooded roads.
"This is the number one way that people are killed through flash floods, especially at night," Shanklin said.
Shanklin also warns against children playing in flood waters, especially near drainage ditches.
"Communities need to prepare now for what could be catastrophic flooding," said Mary Lamm, a National Weather Service Hydrologist.
Lamm says Cairo could possibly see a new record crest for Cairo on May 3.
"Based on current National Weather Service forecasts, we are anticipating near-record flood levels in many parts of the Memphis District," Col. Vernie Reichling, the Corps' Memphis District Commander said. "We have not seen levels predicted this high since 1937."
At least 19 people have voluntarily left their homes in Butler County to seek shelter at the Black River Coliseum Monday morning. Some city streets in Poplar Bluff are flooded.
