Update Monday, 5/14 11:00 A.M. The river has crested upstream from Fort Madison, Iowa. And the weather service expects it to crest at Keokuk and Gregory Landing today or Tuesday. Rain in this week's forecast may delay the length of a few crests, and slow the fall in water levels. But local meteorologists say the rain is not expected to significantly change the current crest forecasts.
