8 in the Air: The Mississippi before a flood

We took the News 8 Drone over the Mississippi River on Tuesday, March 12.

When the Mississipi River floods, water levels can even cover LeClaire Park!

The Mississippi at the Quad Cities reaches flood stage at 15 feet and major flood stage at 18 feet. Flood stage differs from region to region.

See what the repercussions of such high waters are with a great view from the sky! Watch the video to see the different stages of flooding as they occur in Davenport.
