One For The April Record Books

This April is going down in the record book with rainfall.

In just the first three weeks of the month, the Quad Cities have already picked up 6.78" of rain with much of that falling last week.

This places us at #5 on the wettest Aprils on record.  More rain is expected tonight and tomorrow, which means we'll be inching higher up on that list.

The wettest April on record was back in 1973 when 11.30" of rain accumulated.

Check out this amazing photo of the Mississippi River flooding from the Centennial Bridge looking into Davenport from David Hays.  Thanks, David.
