Current Flood Stats

I finally got a reading on the outflow out of the reservoir. This has been unavailable for much of the day.

  • Current Reservoir Outflow: 50,000 CFS (incredible!) - RECORD
  • Current Iowa River Height: 31.24 Ft. - RECORD
  • Only one bridge left accross the Iowa River
  • University of Iowa MU is Flooded (possible levee breach)
  • Flood level predictions likely to increase tomorrow
  • Unpredictable weather making predictions all but impossible
  • Coralville will halt sandbagging efforts tomorrow for one day
  • Iowa City wells are still holding due to the massive volunteer efforts
  • Marriot to evacuate tomorrow
  • Hospital taking critical patients only
