Rock River Cresting

Jun 12, 2018

Thanks to heavy rain upstream, there's flooding Tuesday along the Rock River.

The National Weather Service says the Rock crested Monday at Joslin nearly half a foot over flood stage - it's started to fall and should drop to flood stage by Tuesday afternoon and keep falling. 

At Moline Tuesday, the river is at flood stage. It's expected to rise about two-tenths of a foot and crest Tuesday  afternoon, then begin to fall.

From Saturday to Monday, the Rock rose about four feet at Joslin, and about 2 1/2 feet at Moline.
