Minor flooding of Monocacy River

By Associated Press

The National Weather Service is reporting minor flooding along the Monocacy River near Frederick.

The agency said Monday that the river was at 15.4 feet, just over the 15-foot flood stage, at 8:30 a.m.

The weather service predicts the river will crest at 15.6 feet at 1 p.m., and recede to below flood stage by 4 p.m.

The weather service says the river water could inundate a sewage treatment plant.

The rising water follows heavy rain and up to four inches of snow since Sunday.
