The NOAA has raised crest estimates to 27.7 feet, which would put the top of the water just below Highway 92 and our levees as they currently stand. We have four excavators working on raising our levee at the fairgrounds as we speak, which would help them sustain water up to 31 feet.
Those numbers are subject to change, depending how much rain we do or do not get.
