Spring floods along the Mississippi River

Homes are surrounded by water as flood waters from Spoon River spill into London Mills, Ill., on Thursday night, April 18, 2013. Residents are advised to evacuate, though it is not mandatory. The Mississippi River quickened its ominous rise on Friday after parts of the Midwest were soaked by heavy rains this week, with some towns hurriedly building sandbag levees to protect homes and businesses. Several communities in Iowa, Illinois and Missouri could see near-record flooding this weekend. (AP Photo/Journal Star, Nick Schnelle)
