The Ohio River still is above 50 feet at Paducah. At noon, the stage was 50.75 which means nearly a foot of water is lapping against the downtown floodgates. This picture of the Broadway floodgate shows some water that has seeped under the gate. That's normal. The forecast has the Ohio River below flood stage (39 feet) on March 17. Good news!
