More resources from across Missouri are on stand by as flood waters spread in northwest Missouri.

The Highway Patrol says an airplane from Troop H in St. Joseph has been flying the Missouri River, checking on possible levee breaches. The head of the state patrol colonel Ron Replogle says they are also prepared to bring up a patrol helicopter in Jefferson City if needed. He adds this year's merger of the Highway Patrol and State Water Patrol is helping the northwest Missouri flood fight.
