River within inches of top of levee
June 22, 2011
The levee in southern Iowa in Fremont County between Hamburg and Nebraska City
is now 18 inches from being overtopped, according to a report in the Des Moines Register. That levee is in the same region as Iowa/Nebraska Highway 2, which has been closed between the two states since it is already covered with water on the Iowa side. People living on the Iowa side have been ordered to evacuate as a result of the increased threat of overtopping.
We are prioritizing requests for assistance in connection with the flooding above other projects at the moment, and appreciate the understanding of our customers who may have to wait a little longer than usual for responses to their needs. As usual, however, we are attempting to serve everyone promptly and courteously.
