Black River in Watertown has surpassed its 10-foot flood stage.

As of 7 a.m. this morning, the river was at 10.1 feet and is expected to rise to 11.1 feet by Wednesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

In its flood warning, the weather service said moderate to more extensive flooding would occur if the river reaches 12 feet, with “significant damages” to agricultural, commercial and industrial areas possible.
