Miss. River Rising

Oct 3, 2018

Thanks to heavy rain in recent days up north, the city of Davenport has activated its flood plan. The Mississippi River is 1 1/2 feet below flood stage on Wednesday, and is forecast to crest on Friday at half a foot over flood stage. 

After that it's expected to begin falling. 

Wednesday morning, the city closed South Concord between Utah and River Drive, and two other nearby streets, Wapello and Miller, will probably close on Thursday. The riverfront bike trail will probably be closed later on Wednesday, or Thursday, between the Marquette Landing and Credit Island. 

And city staff says the Make A Wish Walk for Wishes may have to change its route on Saturday, depending on river levels. 

More rain in the forecast could change current projections.
