Moscow’s Paradise Creek reached 11.4 feet Tuesday night, surpassing the previous high of 11.26 feet during the 1996 flood.

Tyler Palmer, acting director of the Moscow Public Works Department, said the volatile creek made history just before 10 p.m.

He said the 11.4-foot measurement was according to the city’s measuring stick on the Perimeter Drive bridge near Guy Wicks Field. The official U.S. Geological Survey monitoring station at the creek was not working properly Tuesday night, he said.
