Mississippi Rising, Rock Falling

Jun 25, 2018

As the Rock River begins to fall, the Mississippi River continues to rise.

The National Weather Service says the Rock River crested Sunday at both Joslin and Moline - 3 1/2 feet over flood stage at Joslin and 1.7 feet over flood stage in Moline. And the river should drop below flood stage at both locations by Thursday and Friday.

Since Friday, the Mississippi River in the Quad Cities has risen 2 feet, and is now one foot below flood stage. It's expected to crest on Saturday at 1.4 feet over flood stage.

On the Wapsipinicon River at Dewitt, the river has crested at 7-tenths of a foot over flood stage, and will probably hold at that level through Friday.
