    im sure most roads will clear by tomorrow night so we can actually travel from one side of Ames to the other. however, by tomorrow night/friday morning it will more than likely reflood. and if the water some how stays off the road tomorrow night, it will back in force by friday night since theres another big round of storms expected to hit. im pretty sure we will destroy the record of total rain from 1993

    If there is no further rainfall in or north of Ames, the expectation is that both the Squaw and Skunk will be below flood stage by Thursday night. Most roads should be dry by then, but will likely need to be cleaned up, and perhaps inspected for damage.

    A lot of the roads in town are open. I-35 and hiway 30 are still closed as well as 13th street in the far east end of town, but I just got back from a water run to Fareway on the north end of town from West ames and had no water over the roads.

    its gonna rain again tomorrow night so theres a good chance that the water keeps rising and the flood stage will rise even more with the rain on friday

    Not at all. It would take another significant rainfall to do that, which is not forecasted.

    Re: How long before water clear the roads in Ames

    friday night is supposed to be similar to last night from what ive heard on tv. and if the river is still rising by tomorrow night it wont take a whole lot more to send it over its banks again
