River Flood Warnings Continue

Recent heavy rainfall across northern Iowa have sent several local rivers into flood stage.  Minor to Moderate flooding is occurring along portions of the Cedar, Shell Rock, Turkey and Mississippi River.

Major flooding occurred on the Turkey River at Spillville Thursday night into Friday morning, but fortunately the flood waters have gone down in that area.

The Turkey River has already reached its crest and will now be falling.

The Shell Rock River at Shell Rock reaches its crest very soon, and will be falling later in the day Sunday.

The Cedar River at Cedar Falls is experiencing moderate flooding as of Saturday evening, and will rise about one more foot and crest Sunday afternoon.

In Waterloo, the Cedar River will be experiencing minor flooding Sunday.

Along the Mississippi River, minor to moderate flooding is occurring in the Dubuque area.  Upstream in near Guttenberg and Lansing, the river has reached its crest and is slowly falling.
