LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – Emergency officials are conducting water rescues in the tiny northwestern Missouri town of Levasy in the wake of a levee breach along the Missouri River.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and the Missouri State Highway Patrol were conducting the rescues by boat Saturday. Access to Levasy is restricted to residents only. Proof of residency is required to enter.
No injuries have been reported.
