Wichita River expected to crest in a few days

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The Wichita River is expected to crest by Friday but not before reaching what the National Weather Service calls an "action flood stage."

The action flood stage will occur when the river crests at 16’00’’.

The river is predicted to crest at 17.9’, just below what is considered flood stage (which is 18’00’’)

The highest the river ever crested was in 2007 when it rose above 24’00’’.
