CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - MAY 03: A mail box rises out of flood water on a service road along Interstate 55 on May 3, 2011 at Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Residents of Missouri, Illinois Tennessee and Arkansas are bracing for record flooding from the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. The Army Corps of Engineers yesterday blew a massive hole in a levee at the confluence of these two rivers to lower the river levels upstream and to help save the town of Cairo, Illinois.
