Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Warning
Issued: 1:19 AM CDT Jul. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... The Flash Flood Warning remains in effect until 615 am CDT for
northern Jackson... northeastern Buchanan... Dubuque and Delaware
counties...

At 116 am CDT, emergency management reported flash flooding in and
north of Dubuque. The little Maquoketa river was out of its banks
near Durango, and evacuations of some residents are underway. Up to
4 inches of rain have fallen so far. More flash flooding is expected
as the axis of heaviest rain gradually shifts south across the
warned area. This is a very dangerous situation. Do not travel and
remain alert for quickly rising water near creeks and streams.

Excessive rainfall over the warned area will cause mud slides near
steep terrain. The mud slide can consist of rock, mud, vegetation and
other loose materials.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Dubuque, Manchester, Asbury, Dyersville, Bellevue, Cascade, Epworth,
East Dubuque, Farley, Peosta, Fairbank, Edgewood, Hazleton,
Earlville, Hopkinton, Lamont, Delhi, New Vienna, Colesburg and
Worthington.

Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are possible in the
warned area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Flooding is occurring or is imminent. It is important to know where
you are relative to streams, rivers, or creeks which can become
killers in heavy rains. Campers and hikers should avoid streams or
creeks.
