Floods

As this seemingly endless band of severe weather continues to roll through the midwest, the copious amounts of rain have created swollen rivers and streams in parts of Iowa. Tonight I was called up to cover a new threat in New Hartford, where residents there are scrutinizing a levee, which could become compromised if the water levels continue to rise.
