Breather for Iowa riverside city? Heavy rain not expected

But she and other officials expect the river that was bloated by heavy rains and snowmelt earlier this year to remain as such as the region heads into what is typically a wet stretch of spring.

As well, the flood warning has been extended through Monday afternoon for the Tippecanoe River near Ora and Monday evening for the Yellow River in Knox.

The river level is projected to reach 8 feet above the flood stage, or around 1 foot shy of the record, at Morris by noon Thursday.

Unlike cities such as Muscatine downstream, Davenport doesn't have a permanent floodwall, opting instead for an open, picturesque riverfront.

Mayor Frank Klipsch says no one was injured Tuesday in the flooding. The Grundy County Emergency Management Agency said the river is forecast to rise to near 24 feet.

The Yellow River in Knox was just under 9 feet shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday. Since the levee is so long, officials say sandbagging is not an option.

The casino is located west of the Missouri River, in the heart of Omaha.

The Mississippi River at Chester on Friday was at almost 37 feet with the weather service forecasting it to crest at more than 43 feet by Monday.

"We're going to have a full-fledged flood fight", Hark said.

The National Weather Service has issued flood warnings for several rivers across IL after several days of soaking rain.

While there are no major flood concerns in the Fox Valley, our sister station WCSJ reports that the Illinois River in Morris could see historic levels. The building is now filled with inches of water and likely will be for some time. But the high water could bring a mandatory halt to river traffic, including barges.
