Flood Warning

FLOOD STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE QUAD CITIES IA IL
1108 AM CDT SUN SEP 25 2016

.Forecast for major flooding continues. Vinton is approaching
20 ft and still rising, placing it at the second highest level on
record (unofficially). Confidence on the crest forecasts are moderate
due to uncertainty with effects of attenuation as the high water
routs downstream. The crest at Cedar Rapids was lowered a half foot,
but may be lowered further if Vinton crests below current forecast
and effects of attenuation become more apparent. Either way, well
above major flood stage is likely at Cedar Rapids.

River forecasts include past precipitation and forecast rainfall for
the next 48 hours.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

If you encounter a flooded roadway, turn around and find an
alternate route. Turn around, don`t drown.
