Possible flood warning issued for Saturday

Possible flood warning issued for Saturday

The region is experiencing road closings as a result of flooding caused by the snow melt, rainfall, frozen ground and ice jams, the weather service said.

Governor Mike Parson met with emergency management officials Friday as flooding worsens across northwest Missouri. "There is no risk to the public or employees as we continue to operate and all safety procedures established for flooding conditions will be followed". Also Friday afternoon, officials asked residents of Valley, home to almost 1,900 people just west of Omaha, to evacuate. Levels are expected to peak around 9pm tonight.

The NWS reckons there is a 10 percent chance that the river crests at least 38 feet, above the highest ever recorded by the Army Corps of Engineers in July of 1993.

When a flood alert is in place, residents are advised to prepare a bag containing medicines, insurance documents and other important items, and to check for flood warnings. "We hit major flooding at 27 feet and that is projected to occur sometime tomorrow and persist through the weekend". At 20.0 feet, gravel roads on the west and south sides of Redfield are affected as well as Delta Circle Road in the vicinity of the H Avenue bridge.

The storm, which contributed to the deaths of a utility worker in Texas and a Colorado State Patrol officer, dropped heavy rain as it moved east across the central Plains.

Along with the Perry area, locations where flooding is possible include West Des Moines, Urbandale, Clive, Waukee, Grimes, Adel, Guthrie Center, Stuart, Dallas Center, Earlham, Granger, Panora, De Soto, Woodward, Van Meter, Jordan Creek town Center, Lake Panorama, Redfield and Adair.

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

Major reservoirs at Belwood, Conestogo, Guelph, Luther, Woolwich, Laurel and Shade's Mills are being used to store runoff and reduce flooding.

Ice Fishing has now been closed at all GRCA conservation areas.
