Flood waters receding, but damage is done in LeClaire


There’s some relief from the flooding, but not enough for a lot of people to notice.

In many areas of the Quad Cities, we haven’t seen water levels like this in five years.

There’s good news in LeClaire.

Levels have dropped about half a foot from Monday. The Mississippi crested that day at 15.14 feet.

Historically, that stands as the fourth highest crest ever in LeClaire.

Even with progress though, people’s properties and local businesses are feeling the effects.
