    • The River Stage is the river height.
    • The Flood Stage is the flood level, before levees.
    • A river's Crest is the highest level of water expected.
    • The Levee Height indicates current flood height levels.
    Make it through the flood by knowing the terms.
    • The River Stage is the height of the river at any given time.
    • The Flood Stage is the original level the river would produce flooding, if there were no levees.
    • A river's Crest is the highest level of water expected.
    • While the Levee Height is exactly that, this is the number to compare to the river stage and forecasted crest.
