High Water Updates

While there’s no longer a flood watch, there is still some high water in the area.  The North Skunk River near Sigourney is at just over 20 and a half feet….about half a foot below major flood stage.  The National Weather Service predicts the North Skunk will crest at 21 feet tomorrow before starting to recede.  Meanwhile, the Des Moines River at Eddyville is at 60-point-6 feet this morning, some two feet below flood stage and is receding.  And the Des Moines River at Ottumwa is at ten and a half feet, a foot below flood stage, and is expected to remain below flood stage.
