CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - Minor flooding is expected in Cedar Falls as the Cedar River tops flood stage by about 1 foot.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports the National Weather Service expects the river to crest in Cedar Falls early Wednesday.

At that expected level, flooding should be minimal, with a road and part of a park left under water.

During April, Waterloo saw more than 7 inches of rain. That makes it one of the city's wettest Aprils on records.

May also is off to a wet start, with 2.3 inches of rain and 1.7 inches of snow.
