    River levels are all normal right now and we are expecting around an inch of rain this week. Something is telling me you're over-exaggerating!

    And of course they place the career fair in tents at a spot that was underwater a few weeks ago. I'm sure that won't be a problem at all for flash flooding.

    My weather radio just went off. Flash flood warnings all along this storm. Rain totals 2-3 inches in past hour with additional 1-2 expected.

    NWS radar image from Des Moines, IA

    Looks like the new weather parking lot will be Ames, Iowa.

    Looks to me like the heavy rain is staying south of Ames.

    Seeded or not, the affected areas weren't scheduled to be re-open at all for this football season.

    Re: Might need those levees in Ames...

    Just came around JT from south and east -- grass lots north side of s 4th have some standing water; softball fields east of University Blvd have standing water in spots at the infield-outfield borders; and the deep ditches between the paved parking lots are at least half full of water. Oh, and it's raining again.
