(Chesterfield, MO) -- The Army Corps of Engineers is predicting more levee failures that could put some Missouri towns underwater for months.

Upstream towns from Jefferson City to Hermann and Washington, Missouri could be inundated.

In St. Louis County, officials say the mammoth Monarch levee protecting the Chesterfield Valley will hold.

But critics say these mega-levees only make things worse,  especially given the size of the flood that's rolling down the Missouri.

"It's definitely going to be a major flood. If we can keep the rainfall down, we won't set any records, that's the good news," says Jim Kramper of the National Weather Service.  "And if we get rainfall? The potential is there, with that much water already in the river, we start getting a lot of rainfall in the Missouri basin, this could become a really serious situation.." 

When the old levee failed in 1993, the Chesterfield Valley was under 15 feet of water.
18 years and millions of dollars later, the levee is bigger and stronger.
