Iowa Autumn Floods

Iowa Autumn Floods

Last week brought torrential rain fall to the area, one area had 12.9″ in two days.  This also brought flooding beyond belief for this time of year and is seldom seen in September, usually a dry month.  Greene, Clarksville and Shell Rock saw severe flooding of their towns.  Where I live we were much luckier as we only received 3″ and are only 15 miles away from the record setting rainfall.

The pictures are from the Big Marsh in the southern part of the county and it took until today to flood the whole marsh into a large shallow lake, something I have not seen since 2014.
