– Supply chains across the Midwest face significant constraints as a portion of the Mississippi River is closed again.
Bloomberg reported a stretch of the Mississippi River, about 125 miles northeast of Memphis, near Hickman, Kentucky, closed Monday as water levels continue to plunge.
Dredging operations began in the afternoon to clear debris from the waterway. The US Coast Guard said three vessels and 51 barges were waiting in the line at Hickman.
According to the National Weather Service, waters in Memphis reached negative 10.79 feet and continue to decline, reaching record-low levels.
