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.

    I thought today was the day the river would crest but now its Friday? I hope this is over soon for all the people who have been flooded out of their homes and I also hope FEMA will prove itself helpful this time instead of just another headache.

    It is so sad seeing so many towns and communities totally devastated by these floods. Just to think what these people have to be going through is heartbreaking. Now they are learning that it isn't over yet that the water will rise some more! I do hope that they will go back and rebuild. There is just no place like home no matter what you have to do to live there.

    I'm shocked that with all the media coverage there hasn't been a peep from FEMA. Looks like nothing has changed in 3 years with their response.
