At 10:30 a.m. Friday hydrologists were predicting a steep rise of more than 20 feet over the course of a day.

Cole County Emergency Management Agency director Bill Farr said his crews are working with staff from the county's public works department, fire district and sheriff's office to routinely patrol the roads near the low-lying areas of the Moreau River prone to flooding.

Farr said road closure signs will be posted if any are closed due to flooding.

The Missouri River in Jefferson City is expected to rise more than 5 feet during the same time period, but as of 10:30 a.m. Friday shows no signs of approaching any flood stage.
