Mississippi Rising in the QC
The Mississippi River is rising in the Quad Cities.
The National Weather Service says Wednesday's level was two to three feet below flood stage, and it will probably go up two feet by Saturday.
The river is now forecast to go over flood stage Tuesday, by about a foot and a half.
Upstream at Fulton, the crest is expected Monday, at a foot above flood stage. And downstream at Muscatine, the Mississippi will reach 18 feet by Wednesday — that's two feet above flood stage.
