One more day.
After cresting at about 17.65 feet late Thursday – a record level – the Yellow River in Plymouth is not expected to drop below the 13-foot flood stage until early Tuesday, the National Weather Service predicted Sunday night. The river finally dropped below major flood stage – 15 feet – Sunday afternoon, according to the NWS.
The historic deluge of rain and snowmelt has caused havoc throughout Marshall County since early last week. High waters forced schools to close – Plymouth schools for four days, including Monday – damaged many roads and soaked many homes.
