River Steady at One Foot Over Flood Stage
Minor flooding continues in the Quad Cities - Friday the Mississippi River is one foot above flood stage. It should hold near that level through the weekend, then begin to rise and by late next week reach two feet over flood stage.
And the forecast is similar in Muscatine - the river is one foot over flood stage, and after holding near that level, it should rise a foot and-a-half through late next week.
Downstream on Friday flooding is considered "moderate" at New Boston, Keithsburg, and Burlington.
On the Rock River meanwhile, after cresting earlier this week, the river is falling and should drop below flood stage at both Joslin and Moline by early next week.
