high water sign

The Mississippi River continues its rise in the Quad-Cities. Earlier today at Locks & Dam 15 in Rock Island the Mississippi was at 16.8 feet and rising. Flood stage is 15 feet. The river is expected to rise to 17.8 feet Friday night, then begin falling.

But the Mississippi isn't the only area river under a Flood Warning. 

A Flood Warning continues for the Cedar River near Conesville until Saturday morning. Earlier today the river was at 12.2 feet and rising. Flood stage is 13 feet.  No flooding is occurring with minor flooding expected. The Cedar is expected to rise above flood stage Wednesday morning and continue rising to 14 feet Thursday night. The river will fall below flood stage Saturday morning.

At 14 feet, water will affect residences along County Road F70.

Also, a Flood Watch has been issued for the Wapsipinicon River near DeWitt.

The watch is based on limited confidence associated with routed flows from upstream and predicted rainfall over the next 24 hours. As the forecast becomes more certain, this watch will either be upgraded to a warning or cancelled.

Earlier today the Wapsi was at 8.9 feet.  Flood stage is 11 feet. The river is expected to rise above flood stage Saturday morning and continue rising to 11.9 feet Sunday evening.

A Flood Watch also is in affect for the Iowa River at Wapello  until Friday night. Earlier today, the Iowa was at 17 feet. Flood stage is 20 feet. The river is expected to rise above flood stage Thursday night and continue rising to 20.2 feet Friday morning, then begin falling later in the day.
