Flood warning issued as Saginaw, Tittabawassee rivers rise

Elkhorn River Flood Warning TOP STORY: From too much snow to too much rain?

A flood warning for northern and parts of central Iowa has been extended through Saturday evening as "local creeks and streams, as well as the main river branches are running high", according to the weather service.

There is a flood watch in place for the Conestogo River through Drayton and St. Jacobs, and the Speed River through Cambridge. Officials were planning to place coal ash on the ice to help it melt and allow the rivers to recede once the natural and temporary dams were removed, but the jams broke up on their own before that plan was set into motion.

"Losses are going to be tied more to being right in the middle of calving season", said James Halverson, executive director of the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association, which was still determining how widespread losses might be.

Due to excessive water from rain, snowmelt, and the collapse of the Spencer Dam on the Niobrara River releases at Gavins Point Dam near Yankton, South Dakota were temporarily increased to 100,000 cubic feet per second before being lowered to 90,000.

Early Friday afternoon, the Missouri State Highway Patrol closed Interstate 29 at USA 136 near Rock Port, Missouri, and north to the Iowa border due to flooding conditions. There has been a disaster proclamation issued for Iowa by Governor Kim Reynolds, after reports of flooding. The river will fall below flood stage Friday morning and continue to fall thereafter.
