The Missouri River reaches the area near English Landing shops.
Flood levels continue to rise today sending a notice to tenants in the English Landing shopping center that an evacuation order may be possible. As of Thursday night, the water had risen to a height of 749 elevation nearing the sandbag wall.
The City of Parkville has said that a mandatory evacuation order would be probable at the 750 elevation mark. Projections show that the water is likely to rise another foot through Friday.
A 24 hour evacuation notice will be sent if weather forecasts predict the water level to increase.
