At Lock and Dam 11 in Dubuque, the river is now four feet below flood stage, and also forecast to fall about one foot through next week.
The Mississippi is two feet below flood stage and falling, at Muscatine. At Burlington the river crested Thursday half a foot over flood stage, and since then it's dropped slightly, and should continue to fall.
The Rock River is also falling - Friday it's two feet below flood stage at Moline, and three below flood stage at Joslin.
