Title:1993 Mississippi River Record Stages and Levee Failures Along the Illinois Border
Author(s):McConkey, Sally A.; Allan, Kingsley; Pollock, Barbara
Subject(s):Mississippi River
Levee Failures
gaging stations
Abstract:River stages recorded at gaging stations along the Illinois border illustrate some of the unusual features of the 1993 Mississippi River flood: new record river levels, the length of the river that was simultaneously impacted by flooding, the timing of the most severe flooding, the duration of river levels over flood stage, and the ultimate failure of levee systems. Graphical and tabular comparisons of stage data recorded during previous major flood events and the 1993 flood dramatically illustrate the uniqueness of the 1993 flood.
