Eastern Iowa prepares for Cedar River flooding

City crews in eastern Iowa are preparing for Cedar River flooding after heavy rains in the area.

Flood crest projections were ratcheted upward after an early Sunday storm raised river levels.  The storm also caused scattered power outages and knocked out traffic signals throughout the metro area.

The river was expected to crest higher than initially expected in Cedar Falls.  Initial estimates set the crest at 4 feet over the flood stage, but the river had already risen more than 6 feet above as of Sunday morning.

Cedar Rapids was also expected to see flooding this week.  The National Weather Service says the river in Cedar Rapids was on pace to rise to 4.5 feet over the flood stage by Tuesday.
