A Flood Warning remains for the Kaskaskia River in Vandalia, and the river is expected to crest this evening. But, that predicted crest has come down over the past day. As of last night, the Kaskaskia River in Vandalia was at 23.7 feet—which is better than 5 feet above the river’s 18 foot flood stage. The river is now expected to crest this evening at 26 feet. And, while that is 8 feet above flood stage, it is down significantly over what was expected to be the river’s crest just one day ago. The river is now expected to fall below flood stage on Monday morning.
