Over the weekend, the Mississippi River crested earlier and lower than expected. The City of Davenport says on Sunday, it reached nearly half a foot above flood stage, and now the water level is slowly falling.

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.

Some residents of Moline are being warned to prepare for possible flooding. Ice jams in the Rock River near the I-74 bridge are causing the level of the river to rise.

The fire station in Barstow may be at a higher risk of flooding because of damage to a dirt levee. That's according to the president of the Carbon Cliff Barstow Fire District.

But Michelle O'Neill reports the land-owner, Rock Island County, has no plans to fix it, and a state agency agrees.
