PALO (CBS 2/FOX 28) - City officials say they expected the Cedar River to Crest about 9:00 p.m. Saturday night in Palo.

In a news release Saturday, officials say they are planning and preparing for a crest near 17 feet.

They also say there is still significant risk for parts of the town already notified earlier this week: East end of Main street, Drake Drive, Thompson Drive, Lincoln Drive, Church Street, 1st Street to Main Street, Linn Drive, Stephen Street Denise Drive, Phil Lane and Dale Lee Drive.

Alliant Energy shut off gas to some of the residences in those areas, and if you're a Palo resident and unsure if you should do the same Alliant can check out your home. Just call 1-800-255-4248.a

Additionally, officials are warning that all residents should plug or cover floor drains.

Sandbags are available at the City Maintenance Shop next to the fire station.
