Cedar River Crests at 3:30 a.m. In Cedar Rapids
Updated: Monday, June 3 2013, 08:32 AM CDT
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) - The rain swollen Cedar River quietly crested in the dead of the night early Sunday moring six feet above flood stage.
The National Weather Service confirmed the river crested at 18.23 feet at 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning, 6.23 feet above flood stage.
For residents of Cedar Rapids the news of the crest comes as welcome relief after days of anxious anticipation of an earlier prediction of 19.9 feet which was made on Friday.
For five days residents of Cedar Rapids on both sides of the river kept anxious eyes on the rising water as the sandbagged the Czech Village and NewBo districts, both of which were devastated by the 2008 floods.
The National Weather service says barring additional, heavy rain upstream, the river should be back to normal by Wednesday.
Still, the Cedar Rapids fire department has extended the closure of boat ramps until Wednesday, and boats and water craft are still prohibited on the Cedar River.
The Iowa River is predicted to crest Friday in Iowa City.
