The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for the Big Blue River until further notice. Currently, the river is at 19.53 feet, with the flood level stage beginning at 19 feet.
Although minor flooding is anticipated, officials have not issued any evacuations as flooding is not expected to affect neighborhoods.
In an effort to lower water levels, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers is releasing water from Tuttle Creek Lake at a rate of 25,000 cfs.
The lake was at 1,124.36 feet Friday morning. Water releases are expected to be ongoing in the next few weeks, with officials hoping to lower the level to 1,105 feet.
Officials advise people to stay off of the water at this time.
