Local emergency management officials are asking residents along the Steinhatchee River to closely monitor the river after its waters rose six feet over the weekend due to the continued heavy rains in the region.

According to Taylor County Emergency Management Coordinator Steve Spradley, the river was expected to crest at the Tennille gauge Tuesday after the area did not receive significant rainfall Monday or Tuesday morning.
