The National Weather Service is now predicting the Klamath River will peak at 42.7feet by 6am on Friday morning. Minor flooding will occur at 38 feet and at 43 feet it will begin to go over the road and start isolating areas such as Requa and the Glenn by morning. Everyone near the Klamath River should be ready to evacuate if necessary.
