UPDATED: Water Was Rising Along Edgewood Road in Cedar Rapids

AFTERNOON UPDATE: It looked like the water was going down again this afternoon. One official told me that the water won’t be getting high enough to close the Edgewood Road Bridge.

On a related note, another official told me that there are typically three floods per year in Cedar Rapids from the Cedar River if you consider flood stage at or above 10 feet.

Obviously, they are not close to last year’s flood by any means.
