River levels in western Mass. still slightly above normal after days of rain


EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – Water levels continue to be above flood stage in parts of western Massachusetts.

The Connecticut River was just inches above its minor flood stage near Northampton Monday night.

Wednesday morning the water was just under an inch above flood stage. Flood stage is at 112 feet, but the flooding isn’t causing real issues and is expected for this time of year.

Much of the flooding is due to snowmelt in parts of Northern New England and a wetter than usual April.
