Rain Leading To River Flooding

May 30, 2012, 5:02 PM by Scot Mundt

Rain Leading To River Flooding

After a couple of hits of heavy downpours, it doesn't take much to get some of the area rivers and creeks out of their banks. 

This weekend brought another round of heavy rain on Sunday to southeast KELOLAND. 

Elk Point, Akron, and Hawarden all had over three inches of rain from Sunday, followed by Canton and Vermillion with just over two inches.

The runoff from that heavy rain has once again taking its toll with the Big Sioux, Little Sioux, and Rock Rivers overflowing their banks.  Most of the river flooding is south of Interstate 29.

Many of these locations have been forecasted to crest Wednesday or over the next couple of days.

However, when you add the rain from Wednesday those forecast crests will most likely be pushed back and other rivers that were close to flood stage may be pushed above their banks over the next couple of days too.
