Governor Blunt has mobilized more than 100 members of the National Guard as floodwater continues to rise in northwest and central Missouri.

Here are the conditions of the Missouri River at various points throughout Mid-Missouri, (as of 11:20 AM, Sunday evening) according to the National Weather Service.

A levee in Brunswick broke Thursday afternoon and the Misosuri Water Patrol spent 12 hours trying to corral a runaway barge.  It is now parked near the Missouri River Bridge in Jefferson City at Capital Sand.

The Columbia/Boone County Emergency Operations Center has also offered this advice: Remember, as little as six inches of water can lift a vehicle off of the road. Do not attempt to drive across a roadway covered with water, you cannot tell how deep the water may be. Do not attempt to walk across a road covered with water; the force of the water is deceptive and could sweep you off of your feet and carry you down stream.

The Columbia/Boone County Emergency Operations Center has fielded several calls from individuals asking where they can purchase sandbags for personal use in the event of flooding.

The following locations have sandbags for sale to the public:
