Residents Cautiously Watching Water Levels in Humboldt, Flooding in Parts of the City
HUMBOLDT, Iowa --Residents In Humboldt on the west fork of the Des Moines river are cautiously watching the water. On Wednesday, it was about four feet above flood stage. Aside from a handful of homes upstream which are seeing major property flooding, things are pretty much under control for the rest of the city. However, if the city were to get four or five more inches of water it could pose serious problems for the city's water treatment plant and several dozen residents along the river.
