Friday afternoon in the Quad Cities

We shouldn't get our hopes up too much, but the Mississippi River has started to fall in the Quad Cities. After setting a new all-time record crest on Thursday at 7.7 feet over flood stage, the river has dropped two-tenths of a foot.

It's not much but at least it's going in the right direction.

The Mississippi has dropped one foot in Dubuque since Tuesday, and dropped half a foot since Tuesday at Fulton.

And at Muscatine Friday afternoon, the river is cresting at 8.3 feet over flood stage.
