Risk for typical springtime flooding along CT River

Rainfall amounts, while forecast to be less than an inch, will push rivers to just over flood stage.

According to the National Weather Service, the flood waters are in the process of receding well below the flooding level. Property owners with land near the river at these points and especially to the north should monitor the river for dramatic rises over the next couple days, if they haven't already.

Union County is bordered on the west by the Mississippi River. Hover over the dots on the map for a graph depicting the current river stage and the forecast.

Drivers should not attempt to drive through areas where the roadway is covered with water.

Both are expected to fall below flood stage by the end of Friday.

As river levels rise near major flood stage, there's a potential for water to rise over the roadways at these two crossings, especially along OSR near Normangee.

The flood advisory issued last week was extended early Tuesday morning for many rivers in MI as April weather brings spring flooding to the state.

A Flood Watch has been issued for parts of western MA along the Connecticut River through Friday.
