The "flood pulse" continues to move downstream and is starting to enter the Missouri River. Here are the hydrographs for the Missouri River at Nebraska City, NE and for the Missouri River St. Joseph, MO. The predicted rises in river level are modest and nowhere near flood stage. It may difficult to track the floodwaters beyond central Missouri as the wide extent of the Missouri and the interaction of other tributaries dampen the effects of the additional water.
If you are interested in following the analysis of the Colorado flooding and its aftermath, the Colorado Climate Center has put together a special web site on the flood. It includes a timeline of events, the meteorology behind the heavy rain and subsequent flooding, and climatological perspective. As updated information and analyses become available they will be posted on this site. Here is the link:
