And It’s Headed This Way…

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — Officials in Dubuque have closed several floodgates as the National Weather Service predicts the Mississippi River will crest above flood stage in the coming days.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports that the city closed the Ice Harbor floodgates on Friday as the National Weather Service predicts the Mississippi River will crest at 17.9 feet this weekend. That’s nearly a foot above flood stage.

Heavy rains Wednesday night led to the overflow of some sanitary sewers in Dubuque.
