Flooding prompts late start for Celebration Belle cruises

MOLINE, Illinois -- The Celebration Belle is open for cruising, now that some of the Mississippi River has receded.

High waters held them back from their normal start date.  Typically the cruises hit the water in April, but in 2019 they didn't get out until mid-May.

The Celebration Belle is just one business that's been affected by flooding.  Click here to see our full flooding coverage.
