Much like a blog, announcement pages display posts you make to the page in chronological order, starting with the most recent. For example, an announcement page would be great for keeping a record of weekly meeting notes, while providing quick access to the most recent meeting info.

Western Iowa drivers should use caution due to flooded roadways

Posted on: March 13, 2019

ATLANTIC, Iowa – March 13, 2019 – The Iowa Department of Transportation urges motorists to use caution as many roads in western Iowa are closed due to flooding or have standing water from rainfall and melting snow. Drivers will want to slow down and drive with caution in these areas.

The following roads are currently closed due to flooding:

  • U.S. 59 in both directions between Iowa 9 and the Minnesota border.
  • Northbound U.S. 75 at Plymouth County Road C-60 near Hinton.
  • U.S. 30 in both directions between Iowa 44 and Iowa 37 near Woodbine.
  • Iowa 44 in both directions between U.S. 59 and Shelby County Road M-47 near Harlan.

Travelers are urged to check 511ia.org for current flood-related closures and detour routes.

When driving around flooded roadways remember the following:

  • As little as six inches of moving water can knock you off your feet.
  • Two feet of floodwater can float your car.
  • Water moving at two miles per hour can sweep a car off a road or bridge.

Avoid flood-susceptible areas, especially low-lying streets where water commonly pools. Never attempt to walk or drive through a water-covered roadway, and beware of rising, swift-moving water.

If you are driving and come upon rapidly rising waters, turn around and find another route. If your route is blocked by barricades, find another route. Barricades are put up by state or local officials to protect travelers from unsafe roads. Driving around them can be a serious risk.

  • The road may be washed out below the water surface.
  • Your vehicle may stall or get stuck in the water, and then get pushed off the road. Once off the road, vehicles often start to roll, making escape difficult or impossible.
  • Many flood-related deaths in the United States are the result of an attempt to move a stalled vehicle.

The latest traveler information is available anytime through our 511 system. Visit 511ia.org; call 511 (within Iowa) or 800-288-1047 (nationwide); stay connected with 511 on Facebook or Twitter (find links at https://iowadot.gov/511/511-social-media-sites); or download the free app to your mobile device.

DES MOINES - Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all state flags in Iowa to be lowered to half-staff, effective immediately to sunrise on Monday, February 11, 2019, in honor and remembrance of U.S. Representative John David Dingell, Jr., the longest-serving Member of Congress in our Nation’s history.

Flags will be at half-staff on the State Capitol Building and on flag displays in the Capitol Complex. Flags will also be half-staff on all public buildings, grounds and facilities throughout the state.


Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flags at half-staff for the same length of time.

  I have been trying to wash away my flu germs on everything I have touched or breathed on.  I washed all my laundry but then realized my desk had things that needed to be cleaned so I sprayed it all with lysal and am hoping that will be enough to kill most the germs.
