CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — Authorities are closing some low-lying roads in Cedar Rapids because they are at risk of flooding as the Cedar River rises.

The Gazette reports that the city said in a statement Friday that the Cedar River could reach moderate to major flood elevation. The release said there is the potential for severe weather and heavy rainfall in the forecast over the next few days, with localized flash flooding possible.

Boat ramps will remain closed until Monday morning in anticipation of the Cedar River dropping below 13 feet (3.96 meters) by then.
