Yesterday I posted how Lansing flood stage along the Mississippi River was going to change, well there are some more changes. Here are the other forecast points along a few rivers that will have changes.
Click on the image above to enlarge. Here is how you read the data above.
WVLI4: river forecast point identifier
Cedar R at Waverly: this is the Cedar River at Waverly
12/+0.5: This means the new flood stage will be 12 feet and that is a change to make it 0.5 ft higher.
Here is the statement from the NWS in Des Moines.
On Wednesday, March 14, 2012, the National Weather Service in Des Moines will change the Flood Stage, Moderate Flood Stage and Major Flood Stage for 44 river forecast points. These changes were coordinated with various local, state and Federal officials, as well as the public.
Please note that the flood stage will change by several feet at several locations.
