Although the rain has stopped, the Kaskaskia River in Vandalia is going to continue to rise for another day. As for late last night, the Kaskaskia River in Vandalia was at 26.5 feet-which is well above its 18 foot flood stage. And, probably would be much higher if not for multiple levee breaks and breaches. The river is now expected to rise both today and tomorrow, cresting on Wednesday at 28.3 feet before beginning to come down. The river is now expected to drop back below flood stage on Friday before midnight.
