Flooding a Concern for Upcoming Weekend and Beyond
DES MOINES, Iowa -- A warmer forecast means that there are flooding concerns for metro residents. “We're all excited for it to get warm and for spring to get here quickly, but we don’t want spring to get here too quickly,” said Polk County Emergency Management Director AJ Mumm. With near-record moisture levels in the ground and a 21-inch frost depth, any rain Iowa gets over the weekend or any quick snow melt will have nowhere to go.
