The Mississippi River in the Quad Cities has broken the all-time record crest set 26 years ago.
Late this morning, the river slowly rose to 7.64 feet above flood stage. That unofficially breaks the record of 7.63 feet over flood stage set on July 9th, 1993.
Meteorologist Rich Kinney, from the National Weather Service in Davenport, says snowmelt caused the first crest in early April.
But then it started raining over the weekend. Many locations received 2-3 inches in a short period of time, and that's what caused the water to rise even more that predicted.
