A really awful flood outlook for the Upper Midwest
February 23, 2011
NOAA has issued a spring flooding outlook saying that much of the Upper Midwest is under significant flooding risk
-- including a 95% chance of major flooding along the Mississippi at St. Paul, Minnesota. The Mississippi River, flowing downstream from Minnesota, forms the full eastern border of Iowa, where it's also projected to have a very high probability of flooding. The James and Big Sioux Rivers in South Dakota are also likely to have major flooding, and both rivers feed into the Missouri River, which separates Iowa and Nebraska.
Flood controls are a major subject of importance to us, and we can help you with flood gates
, temporary dams
(which are far better for public health than sandbags), and portable pumps
. Please feel free to contact us
