TRILBY -- Although still swollen with New Year's rain, the Withlacoochee River is slowly falling from its flood-level high on Friday.

The river level at Trilby measured 13.69 feet Friday, 1.69 feet above flood level, but had slightly dropped to 13.62 feet Monday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service's Southeast River Forecast Center.

"The forecast is for it to be 13.5 feet (Tuesday) and to continue to fall," said Rick Ullom, a hydrologist with the National Weather Service.

The flooding has created some marshy yards along the river, but there were no complaints of any homes being affected, said Michelle Baker, Pasco County's director of emergency operations.

"It's one of those things that comes with riverfront property," Baker said. "Occasionally the river is in your front yard."
