Cahaba River at high level Tuesday, after heavy rains

Posted: Updated:
The Cahaba River is much higher and flowing quicker Tuesday, thanks to heavy rains Monday.

According to data from the U.S. Geological Survey and the Alabama Department of Environmental Management, the level of the Cahaba River has risen from about 3 feet Sunday, April 6, 2014, to a peak of about 33 feet.

The measurements are taken at a station near Helena.

The height of the river has come down some Tuesday, to about 28 feet.

The Cahaba River hit a peak of nearly 20,000 cubic feet per second of water discharge, compared to about 1000 cubic feet/second earlier.
