NEW INFORMATION: River levels falling

Posted: Updated:

Flooding continues on some local rivers due to the heavy rain that fell last week across northeast Iowa.  Flood Warnings continues for many counties. Remember, it's best to not drive through or walk through flood waters.

The good news is that the Turkey River and Volga River are falling.

The Wapsipinicon River at Independence has crested and will continue to fall. It is expected to be below flood stage Tuesday morning.  Downstream at Anamosa, the river will be on the cusp of major flooding when it reaches its crest by Wednesday at 21.0 feet.  It will then fall below flood stage Friday evening.

Maquoketa River at Manchester reached its crest just after midnight Sunday, which was well below the initial forecast.  Good news there, and the river continues to fall.

No flooding is currently forecast on any part of the Cedar River.
