... A Flood Warning remains in effect until 630 PM CDT Saturday for
northern Story County...

At 312 PM CDT... emergency management reported flooding and standing
water continue across northern Story County due to the extreme
rainfall amounts received Friday. Flooding along the south Skunk
River in and around Story City will continue through tonight.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Story City... Roland... Gilbert... Zearing and McCallsburg.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams... as well as farm and country roads. Do not
attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
