Local River Flooding

We’ve had a lot of heavy rain from Friday night through Sunday evening.  That has lead to the rise of area creeks and rivers.

Check out the Doppler Radar estimated rainfall totals in the last 48 hours (through 9 PM Sunday).

Many Flood Warnings are in effect.

The Cedar River at Cedar Falls is forecast to get close to Moderate Flood Stage.

The Iowa River at Marengo and Belle Plaine are also experiencing flooding.

The English River at Parnell:

North Skunk River near Sigourney:

The Big Bear Creek at Ladora is VERY CLOSE to breaking a record crest.  We’ll be keeping a close eye on this over the next few days.
