Cedar Rapids Preparing for Flood Outlook
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- Eyes are on the rivers in Iowa as days of rain are pushing several out of their banks.
We haven't seen any flooding yet in Cedar Rapids, but the city is still getting prepared.
The Cedar River is expected to hit 14.7 feet on Tuesday, which will put it at moderate flood stage.
The Public Works Department is already preparing and dispatching equipment to flood prone areas of the city.
The flood projection for Tuesday is based on expected rainfall in the Cedar River watershed over the next 24 hours.
How much rain ends up falling over the next several days will influence that projection.
Campgrounds in Fayette County already are being evacuated tonight after this weeks heavy rain.
Gouldsburg park, Gilbertson park, and a Skip-a-Way camp ground in Clermont are all being closed.
