Record Flooding In Byron

The Rock River at Byron is cresting Friday night at just over 17 feet, which is the highest it has ever been.

Historical Crests
(1) 16.50 ft on 07/25/2010
(2) 16.12 ft on 06/14/2000
(3) 15.52 ft on 08/25/2007
(4) 14.81 ft on 06/15/2008
(5) 14.79 ft on 06/16/2008

Highest level this week - 17.05'

Here's a look at the river forecast. Assuming no major rain, the river will be in moderate flood by Sunday, minor flood by Tuesday, and out of flood stage by the second half of next week.

Byron could definitely use the relief. Here are some of the newest photos coming in... thanks to Claude Files for sending these in.
