    The purpose of the Upper Mississippi River System Flood Frequency Study was to update the discharge frequency relationships and water surface elevations for the Mississippi River and Illinois River above Cairo, Illinois, and the Missouri River downstream from Gavin’s Point Dam. FLOOD HISTORY OF MISSISSIPPI Mississippi River Floods of Dates: April and May Deaths: flood-related deaths in several states Impacts: Over , homeless in several states Flood inundations: 27, square miles in several states Costs: Property damage was estimated at over $ million dollars ( dollars), equivalent to over $5 billion dollars today across all of the states.

    The flood of was an unusual and significant hydrometeorologic event. It is distinct from all other record floods in terms of its magnitude, severity, damage, and the season in which it occurred. Precipitation during April through July produced several floods of record in many areas of the Upper Mississippi River (UMR) basin. The Mississippi River is North America's longest and largest river in terms of discharge, and the fifth largest discharge river worldwide, at an average of 17, cubic meters per second (, cubic feet per second).The Mississippi flows 3, kilometers (2, miles) from Lake Itasca in northern Minnesota to its delta in southern Louisiana (see map).

From mid-June through early Augustflooding was severe in the upper Mississippi River Basin following a wet-weather pattern that persisted over the area for at least 6 months before the flood.

The magnitude and timing of several intense rainstorms in late June and July, combined with wet antecedent climatic conditions, were the principal causes of the flooding.

Arguments put forth in the popular press and elsewhere that land‐use modifications in the Mississippi River basin exacerbated flooding in are reviewed in detail, and it is suggested that these effects may be important for floods with return periods.

Fifteen other gaging stations recorded peak discharges exceeding previous maximum known regulated discharges (Parrett and others, ).

Therefore, peak discharges measured for this study can be compared with recent flood discharges ( and ) in the Raccoon River basin, with other flood peaks in the upper Mississippi River basin, and with extreme floods on record for the United States (Costa, a,b).

Much of the United States in the upper reaches of the Mississippi River drainage basin received more than times their average rainfall in the first six months of the year, and parts of North Dakota, Iowa, and Kansas experienced more than double.

The rains often arrived in very intense storms. During spring and summerrecord flooding inundated many of the stream and river valleys in the upper Mississippi and the Missouri River Basins.

The flooding was the result of widespread and numerous intense thunderstorms that, together with saturated soils, produced large volumes of runoff. The magnitude of flooding exceeded the year discharge values (1-percent chance of exceedance.
