SPOKANE—With more rain forecasted to hit the region this week, experts said the Spokane River could rise above flood stage.

Experts said the river could hit flood stage by Friday.

Centennial Trail along Upriver Driver was already underwater by Wednesday.  The City Parks Department said any portion of the trail underwater should be considered closed.

Authorities said spring run off pushed the river bank to its limits.

Emergency officials warned people to stay out of the river because the current is very swift and dangerous.
