...Major Flooding Forecast for the Turkey River...

.Extremely heavy rainfall overnight is causing rapid rises along the
Turkey river upstream of Elkader and Garber. Rainfall reports
between 3 and 7 inches were common in the headwater areas of the
Turkey River basin. Runoff from this rainfall will result in rapidly
rising water along the Turkey River today, with crests expected to
be in the Major category by Thursday.  The latest forecast
information is included below.

River forecasts take into account both observed and forecast
precipitation.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

If you live in a threatened area, be alert for high or rising water,
and be ready to move to higher ground if necessary.

Do not drive cars into flooded areas. Remember, it only takes two
feet of water to float most automobiles, including sport utility
vehicles. Turn Around, Don`t Drown!

Stay tuned to your favorite source of weather information, &
including NOAA Weather Radio, for later statements.
