The level on the Kaskaskia River in Vandalia is finally starting to come down. As of last night, the river was at 25.5 feet—which is still well above the river’s 18 foot flood stage. But, that level is coming down in the past 24 hours and will continue to come down. And, the river is now expected to fall below flood stage on Friday evening. The river will then continue to come down and get down to 15.3 feet on Sunday, nearly three full feet below the river’s flood stage.
