River level falling

River level falling

Looks like the river has crested. Reading at 9:30 pm was 15′ 11″. Thank You to everyone who heeded the warnings and stayed safe. This was a tricky few days to forecast with the frequent and heavy rain storms. Red Rock will increase their release from 30,000 cfs to 50,000 cfs on Friday. There were many rumours circulating today about an increase today. Keep current on latest river gauge data and forecasts at www.wapelloready.org/river
