The flooding that devastated the U.S. Midwest is likely to last into next week, as rain and melted snow flow into Kansas, Missouri and Mississippi, the National Weather Service said.

Reuters reports floods driven by melting snow in the Dakotas will persist even as Nebraska and Iowa dig out from storms that have killed four people, left one missing and caused more than a billion dollars in damage to crops, livestock and roads.

Nebraska, Iowa and Wisconsin and Mississippi all declared states of emergency after the floods. The flooding killed livestock, destroyed grains and soybeans in storage and cut off access to farms because of road and rail damage.
