The Mississippi River and Rock River hit major flood stage in March 2019 — and it was only the start of flood season.
The Mississippi River reached 20.68 on April 7 after being expected to crest at 20.6. It crested again at 22.70 on May 2, setting a new record.
Take a look at some of the photos our viewers and staff have collected so far. We’ll keep adding as the water keeps rising — and you can forward yours to Local 4 on Twitter or Facebook or our app on your iPhone or Android phone.
River Drive at the Government Bridge during the Flood of April 2011 (20.71) and yesterday with the same traffic light sign on dry ground and a train passing through. Where is that water this year? 20.5 crest expected today. #qcweather #qctraffic #qcflood pic.twitter.com/xlb4Dc7xQV — Local 4 WHBF (@Local4NewsWHBF) April 7, 2019
The foot of the Skybridge…. pretty incredible to see the mighty Mississippi this close up!
Though, undoubtedly some people may say it’s a little too close for comfort. #qcflood pic.twitter.com/obIw6qXoFh — Redrick Terry (@RedrickTerryTV) April 8, 2019
