Flooding on the Mississippi Affecting Shipping of Ag Product

May 6, 2019 02:55 PM

The Mississippi River at the Quad Cities in Iowa and Illinois reached a new record high and it's disrupting efforts to move ag product on the river.

The situation is so bad the CME says it is affecting corn and soybean shipping stations. You can read the release from CME Goup here. It says the shipping stations are unable to load due to high water levels and flooding.  The National Weather Service website showed the Mississippi River level last Thursday at 22.64 ft.  That's just above the 22.63 ft mark reached on July 9th, 1993.
