Mississippi Recedes in East Dubuque

Some East Dubuque residents are finally able to get to their homes after more than two months of flooding. The river crested at around 23 feet at the end of April and now sits at just more than 17 feet. Ron Greve rents a home off Baston Road and just a few weeks ago he was boating to and from his home. Now he can actually drive up to it. Despite the river dropping, Greve and his neighbors are still without running water due to a main break. East Dubuque Mayor Kirk VanOstrand says the break kis still a few feet under water. Most of Baston Road is closed to the public and only people who live there are allowed on the road.
