15.26 the river approaches moderate flood stage, and is near record levels. Minor flooding of adjacent farmland occurs. No residences or other structures are affected.
15 the river reaches the top of the levees. Levee failure is likely. Water will inundate farm fields and grazing areas but no residences or other structures are threatened.
14 water approaches the top of the levees. Prolonged flow could cause damage to the levee system.
12 water reaches the base of the levees.
9 the river reaches minor flood stage, and flooding between the levees occurs. No damage to structures is expected.
7 the flood plain between the levees begins to flood. No damage is expected.
