Officials in Davenport say the city is building a bigger flood barrier in the wake of a breach in April that sent Mississippi River floodwaters rushing into downtown streets. Davenport's downtown sits on the banks of the Mississippi, with no permanent floodwall. 

The Davenport City Administrator tells the Quad-City Times that the city will build larger flood walls when there is a high probability the river cresting above 21 feet. Days after the last temporary barrier broke on April 30, the river hit a historic crest of 22.7 feet.
