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.
