Gibbon Fire Chief Rick Brown said the Wood River began rising around 4 a.m. Wednesday and was flooding by 6:30 a.m. The crest of 16.8 feet was lower than the 17.7 feet predicted and the March peak of 17.3 feet. “It was the whole northeast side again, probably 30 to 35 houses,” Brown said, and several businesses. “... But it was wider this time. There were places that flooded this time that were dry in March.”
