I've heard on the radio up here that the weather hasn't even been bad there and all the water is coming from up this way.
Sorry!!!!
I hope you are ok.... my SIL goes to college in Winona which is where they got 7 inches of rain the other day and getting it again today... thankfully she is home for the summer.

Smile Greetings

Greetings from Flooded Des Moines.. All of our down town bridges are closed a good share of down town is sandbagged up to the first floor windows in the intertainment district, and some of the river front Codo's are sandbgged. We are right now at 2300 hours cdt under a severe storm/tornado warning with a predicted 3-5 inches additional rain forcast tonight. according to the experts this flood is a record breaker
some have called it a 500 year flood say a prayer for us that it does not git any worse. Dave

I think they outta stop calling them 200-500 year floods.
I think I have seen about 3 such titled floods in Iowa since I moved here!
Either I'm REALLY old, or they need to be called 7-15 year floods.

We're in the middle of another storm on top of all the flooding, we now have the flash flooding to deal with.

Luckily I'm out of the flood area. This is just horrible. It's the 500 year flood here.

Gee, maybe I'd better call my cousins and see if they are OK. One lives on NE 26th St, and the other in Ankeny.
