The risk of flooding in the Quad Cities hasn't changed over the last few weeks.
The National Weather Service office in Davenport says the Spring Flood Outlook for the Mississippi River continues to show a "well above normal chance" of major flooding. But there's a lower risk on tributaries.
Flood preparations are well underway in Davenport as the Mississippi River continues to rise. As of Friday, the floodwall is up around Modern Woodman Park, Credit Island is closed, and River Drive through downtown is closed.
The predictions for severe spring flooding are beginning to come true. Heavy rain is forecast for our area Wednesday, and since the ground is mainly still frozen, the rain and snowmelt will quickly run off.
