Flooding is ongoing in much of these areas. Creeks and smaller
branches of the root... upper Iowa and Cedar rivers in the region
have all had flooding today. While the water level has receded in
some areas... it remains high for most that impacts roads.
Many secondary roads are still under water or too heavily damaged to
travel on. Highway 9 west of Osage Iowa remains closed due to
surface washout. Some basements were also impacted from high
rainfall rates on Sunday.
Additional showers and thunderstorms are possible this evening.
These are not expected to make matters worse but could delay the
fall of the water levels going into Tuesday.
Flood waters are still impacting numerous roads around the region.
Drive carefully... especially after dark. Heed all Road closures
and do not take chances.
Most flood related deaths occur in vehicles. Do not attempt to cross
water covered bridges... dips... or low water crossings. Never try to
cross a flowing stream... even a small one... on foot or in a vehicle.
