Higher than normal river levels and snow may worsen spring flooding, NWS warns

QUAD CITIES-- There are new concerns about spring flooding as the snow piles up.

The National Weather Service says river levels are higher than normal for this time of year both on the Rock and Mississippi River.

The Mississippi River has gone up nearly five-feet in the last five days.

It's now two-feet under flood stage.  The National Weather Service says these conditions are similar to what led to record flooding last year.
