Rising Rivers

May 1, 2017

Thanks to weekend storms, the Mississippi River and other rivers in this area are rising.

The National Weather Service says the Mississippi should crest Tuesday at Clinton, but will still be two feet below flood stage.

In the Quad Cities, the river is half a foot below flood stage Monday, and should crest at flood stage Tuesday night and Wednesday. 

Downstream at Muscatine the crest is predicted for Wednesday, one foot above flood stage. 

 The Rock River at Joslin is at flood stage Monday, and should rise another foot and crest on Wednesday. It's just below flood stage in Moline, and is expected also to crest on Wednesday nearly one foot over flood stage. 

 The Wapsipinicon River crested at flood stage Sunday at DeWitt, and has started to fall.
