Ice Jam Causes Rock River Flooding
The combination of rain, warm temperatures, and ice jams means flooding is possible along the Rock River. The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for the Rock, near Joslin, which is upstream from the Quad Cities.
Monday morning, the river was at two-tenths of a foot over flood stage, with minor flooding occurring.
But the Rock could reach 1 1/2 feet over flood stage by Thursday morning, then begin to fall.
