Mississippi River likely to hit flood stage in La Crosse by weekend

WIZM staff



Rapid melting of last week’s snows in the region could push the Mississippi River to the 12-foot flood stage in La Crosse by Saturday.

A crest of 12.6 feet is being predicted for Monday. The Mississippi has already gone up a foot in La Crosse since Saturday. It’s now at 8.5 feet.
