On July 9, 2014 at 7am, the Mississippi River at Clarksville crested at 34.78 feet in Major Flood Stage, the 5th highest crest in Clarksville since records started being kept at this location. Since then, the river as slowly start to recede, but forecasts indicate the river will remain above flood stage for well over a week, likely keeping businesses in the downtown area closed for a while longer as the water recedes and clean up can begin.
