River Report: Flood Warning

These photos were taken on Wednesday afternoon. The river was still going up, and the Flood Watch had been changed to a Flood Warning.

At 9:15 PM Wednesday the river was at 14.10 feet. Flood stage is 15.0 feet. It's expected to exceed that by Thursday evening. And it will keep going up, rising above 17.0 feet by Saturday evening, and cresting at 17.8 feet by Tuesday morning.

Looks like there is a chance water will be over the banks and flowing over the field. We should still be fine, but we have friends who live much closer to the river than we do. I'm starting to worry for them.
