At least 13 people have died due to flooding in the Midwest, authorities said Saturday as up to 10 million people living across six states remain under flood warning.
Weather experts said over the weekend that several areas along the Mississippi River were likely to see near-record crests, according to CNN.
The river's rise was likely to affect towns in places like Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky and Tennessee. 
Residents of towns in southern Illinois and southeast Missouri girded for record high crests that surpassed 45 feet.
So far, six people in Missouri and seven people in Arkansas have died due to the flooding.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the 69-year-old man was trying to cross a flooded road across Dry Fork Creek when his car was swept away Thursday night.
