No Travel Warnings Issued Due To Flooding

No Travel Warnings Issued Due To Flooding
Alvord, Iowa

ROCK RAPIDS, IA -

Heavy rain over the weekend and on Monday is creating dangerous travel conditions in parts of southeast South Dakota, northwest Iowa and southwest Minnesota.

Rivers are rushing after up to 10 inches of rain fell to start the week.  Because the ground was already saturated, rain that fell had nowhere to go.

It's prompted Lyon County, Iowa, Sheriff's Office to declare no travel is allowed in that county as of 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.  Officials say there is no travel on state roads, blacktops or gravel roads.  Authorities report there are bridges washed out.

The mayor of Rock Valley, Iowa, is asking people there to stay off the roads.  Only people who are volunteering should be out and about.  Flood waters are over Highway 18 west.

Near Alvord, Iowa, the Burlington Northern train track is closed.  KELO's Matt Holsen says with just one more foot of water, the track will be gone.  That would also close a main road in the area.

Here's video from near Alvord, Iowa.
