We just arrived in Foley, Missouri, a small town of about 150 people in Lincoln County. From where I'm standing, it looks as if the entire town is under water.
There are some hilly areas to the west of Main Street that are obviously dry. But Foley is flooded.
The police chief thought this would be the worst, as the river was supposed to be cresting now. But as we were speaking we got word that there is a new, higher crest prediction for Friday night, four inches more than what it is today.
He said it's still lower than what they saw in '93 and that he thinks most people will come back and rebuild.
