The U.S. Coast Guard was scheduled to re-open a portion of the Mississippi River, May 6, near Caruthersville, Mo., after closing it earlier due to the possibility of vessel wakes topping the city's front flood wall. The National Weather Service issued a River Stage Forecast, which adjusted the projected crest at Caruthersville from 49.5 ft to 48.1 ft. This adjustment allowed the Coast Guard to re-open the river to limited commercial traffic.
