Cedar Rapids Not Alarmed About Rising River Levels - Yet
Updated: Thursday, May 30 2013, 12:56 PM CDT
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) - Cedar Rapids public works officials say they're not worried - yet - about the flood potential of rising water in the Cedar River.
Thursday morning Public Works Director Craig Hansen tells CBS 2/FOX 28 that while there have been some road closures, so far they're not seeing more damage than minor flooding in areas already prone to flooding.
Several streets, including Ellis Blvd, Edgewood Road, Otis Road and A Street SW all had segments closed to public access due to rising water.
Earlier this week the National Weather Service predicted the river would crest about six-feet above flood stage, then Tuesday lowered that estimate to about three-feet, and then again Thursday morning went back to the six-foot estimate.
Hanson says extra personnel are monitoring the river levels at various critical locations, that pumping crews are standing by if necessary, and that for now about all the city can really do is wait - and watch.
