There are currently no forecast points above flood stage in the
NCRFC area. The localized flooding and river rises from
yesterday`s heavy rains have mostly begun to recede. Portions of
the Illinois River basin are seeing localized flooding and
additional rises from today`s round of heavy rain, but no river
flooding is expected
Multiple rounds of heavy rain in recent weeks have caused elevated
flows on many rivers across eastern North Dakota, Minnesota,
Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois.
The Mississippi River remains at elevated levels along its entire
length within the NCRFC region. The river is at or near action
stage at many sites from Minnesota downstream through Iowa,
Illinois and Missouri.
Locations across the region that are already experiencing high
levels remain vulnerable to additional flooding.
