Levels and flows have peaked across the watershed, water levels are dropping steadily in ALL areas.
APRIL 22, 2014 MISSISSIPPI VALLEY WATERSHED—The FLOOD WARNING for all areas of the Mississippi Valley watershed is terminated. Water levels and flows are decreasing steadily and while they remain high, the immediate threat of any additional flooding has passed.
Residents are strongly urged to stay away from all fast flowing water courses and to remind children about the dangers of playing on or near fast flowing water in ditches and smaller creeks.
NO FURTHER UPDATES WILL BE ISSUED ON THIS FLOOD EVENT. Watershed conditions are expected to return to normal within the next two weeks.
