Rain Turns Many Fields Into Small Lakes In West Point Area

Rain Turns Many Fields Into Small Lakes In West Point Area
Fields about nine miles east of West Point off Highway 32 around 2 this afternoon.
Heavy rain continued to cause problems in Cuming and neighboring  counties Monday afternoon.
KTIC Radio had measured over 6 inches of rain by midday.
8 inches had fallen in other areas near West Point. Fields along Highway 32 between West Point and Oakland resembled small lakes.
Water-filled ditches are a common sight.  As the Elk Horn and other rivers and streams continue to rise, lowland  flooding is increasing.
On West Points’ western edge near the Elk Horn, water covers many residential properties.  Pumps struggle to keep the water from rising more.
The Missouri River is swelling at Sioux City, where flood warnings are posted.  Check before you drive into any of the areas in northeast Nebraska and western Iowa as road closings  are possible at any time.
Portions of highways such as 275, 32 and 77 in the West Point area may have water over them due to relentless rains, which are forecast to end later tonight.
