Caught on camera: Mississippi River breaches Iowa levee, floods restaurant

Levee breach leaves Iowa city under 6 feet of water

According to the National Weather Service, the Mississippi River is expected to crest at 35.5 feet around Monday.

"The temporary flood protection levee that they put in place failed this afternoon and it's inundating a portion of downtown Davenport", Scott County Emergency Management Director told The Weather Channel. "The flood waters have done and continue to do real damage to our community, so we are eager to join the efforts to raise money to help our neighbors rebuild".

City of Peoria crews will work to protect the River Station building first.

Other parts of the Mississippi River were experiencing major flooding on Friday along the Iowa-Illinois border, but Palmer said they were not expected to reach the same historic levels.

The National Weather Service said it should fall below 22 feet late Sunday.

The Mississippi isn't the only river bulging out of its banks.
