    More rain on its way

    There is a very impresive lightning display going on out west. Looking at the radar there seems to be shower going through central Iowa. This on a day when we were told there would be no rain until Weds.

    There's a Storm Movin' In...

    And lightening flashes... across the sky?

    Yeah, storms popping up to the north of us, and to the west. I guess these are the "unpredicted" rain storms they were hoping we wouldn't see?

    Counties to the west of DSM were under Thunderstorm warnings until 10 - have not seen any new ones pop up yet.

    Re: More rain on its way

    can anyone offer any resources on where I can find maps of area's that were effected by previous floods?

    For instance I would love to see a map of the floods of 93 or some some photos taken from planes or something, so I can better gauge how bad this will effect me.

    The cities and counties have given nothing. I know it is not a exact science and no one can know how bad it will get when we are breaking a record, but I would really love to see some information so I can make my own conclusions.

    Re: More rain on its way

    A runaway Barge just hit the Hwy 20 bridge in Dubuque which connects Illinois and Iowa.

    A bridge in Boone was destroyed today too. Wow, this is unbelievable.

    Re: More rain on its way

    They said on the news a little bit ago that the bridge is closed and they are re routing traffic through a crossing to wisconsin. They are inspecting the bridge for damage now.

    Re: More rain on its way

    I wonder what this will mean for the Des Moines River and Saylorville Lake?

    Re: More rain on its way

    Well if that is the case I am both happy and ******.

    First I am happy we haven't built our wall yet because we would have to add to it.
    ****** cause we have a bigger wall to build in less time.
