Update Report: Flooding in Missouri and Illinois

BNSF is experiencing flooding in Missouri and Illinois. High water is affecting shipments moving along the Mississippi River at various points between Keokuk, IA and Memphis, TN. There are other areas in northern Illinois near Peoria and Vermont currently out-of-service due to high water.

BNSF will continue to monitor the flooding. The outage is currently revised to last 4 to 5 days
due to ongoing weather conditions. Reroutes may be established in order to minimize impact
to our customers.
