Yakima River Continues to Rise

Posted: Updated:
BENTON CITY, Wash.--  Water levels continue to rise on the Yakima River near Benton City.   The river stands around 11 feet now, and it is predicted to crest at just over 12 feet on Wednesday.
     That's just below flood stage.  Property owners should continue to keep an eye on the water level and take precautions.  Boaters should also be careful as debris may be floating in rivers.
