Worldwide---we've got cyclones, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes and now floods.

- Authorities closed a bridge connecting Illinois to Iowa over the swollen Mississippi River, as levees along the country's second-longest river were being topped with sandbags Tuesday to defend against rising water.

With some 2500 National Guard already deployed across the state trying to keep the floodwaters at bay, experts believe the Mississippi, the country's second longest river, could crest during the next two days.

Iowa Governor Chet Culver warned the Mississippi would be the next battleground, as floodwaters from the state's Cedar, Iowa and Des Moines rivers poured into it.

"It's likely we'll see major flooding in every city on the border, from New Boston on down. We're very concerned about that," he said.

This is a nightmare. Keep an eye out for Locust swarms....
