Downstream Missouri River prepares for flooding

Downstream Missouri River prepares for flooding

As of now, several area rivers are expected to be into minor to moderate flood stage by Friday and Saturday.

The alert, issued by the Government's flood information service, states: "River levels are rising as a result of the prolonged rainfall on Saturday 16/3/19".

Midland city officials say Emerson Park, Dublin Avenue, West St. Andrews Road, Currie Parkway, Pomranky Road, St. Charles Street and Poseyville Road likely will be under water this weekend.

The Governor's office activated the State Emergency Operations Center in response to expected historic flooding along some areas of the Missouri River.

Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) on Friday declared an "unusual event" at its Cooper nuclear power station in Nebraska due to the possibility of flooding along the Missouri River following a powerful winter storm this week. "People who live near rivers should be paying close attention to flooding updates and be ready to move valuable property, if necessary". Floodwalls protect city to 20 feet.

The All-Star responded with the fire as expected. "It turned to, I mean, the guy is f-king everything". Never have before, but once he said the comment, his wife repeated the same thing to me as well.

The flooding happened after a deluge of recent rainwater and snowmelt was sent pouring over frozen ground, overwhelming creeks and rivers. Emergency workers used boats to evacuate residents. There has been a disaster proclamation issued for Iowa by Governor Kim Reynolds, after reports of flooding.

In hilly terrain, there are hundreds of low water crossings that are potentially unsafe in heavy rain.

The Coast Guard and Corps also requested all river vessel operators create as little wake as possible between St. Joseph downstream to Kansas City to minimize levee damage. Thousands of homes and businesses were still without power Friday in Colorado, mostly in the Denver area, although crews worked throughout the day to restore electricity.

Flooding is also common if somewhat less widespread in parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, and South Dakota in particular. DO NOT take USA 275 North. Flooding in Hamburg, Iowa will block your progress.

"Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads".
