Flood warning remains in effect

A flood warning for Crittenden County along the Ohio River remains in effect through Saturday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service at Paducah.

At 10 a.m. today, the river stage at Shawneetown, Ill., was 45.1 feet. Flood stage is 33 feet.

As floodwaters continue to recede, it is probable that the Cave In Rock Ferry will re-open at some point Thursday, as this morning's measurement at Shawneetown was roughly only 6 inches above the level at which the service can resume.

As soon as The Crittenden Press is notified of resumption of ferry service, it will be posted here.
