NWS issues flood warning for Denton Creek near Justin

TOP STORY: From too much snow to too much rain?

The flooding followed days of snow and rain - record-setting, in some places - that swept through the West and Midwest. Only minor flooding of low-lying areas is expected along there. After that, river flooding will be a big concern by the end of the week and weekend.

The North Raccoon River is forecast to rise to flood stage Thursday evening and continue rising to 20.5 feet, or 5.5 feet above flood stage, by Saturday evening.

If the status is upgraded to a flood warning, they should turn off their gas, water and electricity, move their family, pets and auto to safety, and move any precious possessions upstairs. Floodwalls protect city to 20 feet.

The National Weather Service expects the Missouri River to reach 30.1 feet in St. Joseph early next week and hold at near record levels until the middle of next week, when it is expected to begin to slowly recede.

"The public is reminded to exercise extreme caution around all water bodies", the GRCA said.

Ice jams can occur quickly and without warning, increasing the risk of localized flooding.

Officials in eastern Nebraska said more than 2,600 people living along the Missouri, Platte and Elkhorn rivers there had been urged to evacuate, as waters breached levees in several rural spots.

As of 9 a.m. Friday, the Tittabawassee River stage was at 20.7 feet and rising.

Snow, rain and powerful winds are sweeping across the Upper Midwest. The closure was reminiscent of historic flooding along the river in 2011 that saw segments of the interstate in western Iowa washed away.

The midweek storm crippled parts of Colorado and Wyoming with blizzard conditions. South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem said she signed an emergency declaration to free up more state money for people affected by the storm and the flooding.

At least four deaths were linked to the weather system. The light armored vehicle will be used to assist in water rescues and other areas where specialized equipment can help Nebraskans. Homes were reported damaged, while power was knocked out to thousands.

Please do not assume that a highway that is clear of flooding in Missouri will be clear in Iowa, Kansas or Nebraska. Even if they are well back from a known water source, the location might be the last, best spot to turn around.

Flooding is also common across Iowa, with numerous roads statewide closed.
