Officials also said street flooding is expected to continue through the weekend in the Northshore and Bellaeu Woods subdivisions as well as the US 59 U-turns under the highway bridge.

According to the Flood Control District, the river is rising as run-off from Peach Creek and the upper portion of the East Fork moves downstream. The river will exceed its banks Friday and rise to moderate flood levels on Saturday morning, officials said.

Streets in the subdivision south of FM 1485 and on the west side of the river will begin to flood Friday afternoon, including Riverside Drive and Chinquapin Lane.
