Rice County's rising river levels are normal in spring when snow melts and are no cause for concern unless a significant amount of rain falls. Local rivers are being monitored for potential flooding by Rice County emergency management and city emergency management officials.

From March 24 to 4:15 p.m. on March 31, the Cannon River at Highway 29 rose from just under 12 feet to 15.73 feet, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

    That was alarming to have floods. On the other hand, it is an advantage for the plants to have wetlands sine summer is near. No drought for the moment.
