1440.2 Water begins crossing the road several hundred feet to the left of the bridge. No towns or major roads are flooded.
1439.7 Flood waters affect farmland or wooded areas in refuge. Due to relative flatness of the area within reach of the gage a rather large area becomes flooded. Damage is to crops and farm buildings.
1437.8 River flow no longer confined to one channel. Flow begins in channel 2 miles west and through various culverts that may be blocked in winter months.
