Marshalltown Seeing Record Flooding
Flood waters have cut the city of Marshalltown in half creating detours for drivers, as well as police and firefighters.
“This is a record. This is a record. 2008 was a new record. Last year was a record. And this year is about two inches higher than last year,” Waterworks manager Steve Wincox said.
The Iowa River has been pouring over Highway 14.
The Marshalltown Waterworks building is nearly an island. The manager says the pumps are working fine and all the wells are above water.
Flood waters make it difficult to get around including for emergency crews. If there was a fire or medical emergency, the Albion Fire Department could handle it.
Marshalltown police say the Iowa State Patrol can back them up if required.
