Spokane River reaches flood stage
The National Weather Service predicted the river will rise another 6 inches above its flood stage of 27 feet this weekend before it begins to fall Monday.
The agency says that if the river reaches 28 feet, sections of the Peaceful Valley neighborhood might flood. Flooding is also possible along Upriver Drive and in the Riverpoint industrial area.
Heavy rains across the region, along with melting mountain snows, have caused rivers to swell.
