Mississippi River Towns Prepare for Flooding

BURLINGTON, Iowa - Iowa's Mississippi River communities have been preparing for flooding as the river's waters continue to rise following days of heavy rain.

City employees and volunteers have erected a sandbag barrier around much of Burlington's Memorial Auditorium in an effort to keep rising water out of the building, and officials in Dubuque have closed several flood gates.

The city of Clinton also has installed floodgates and received reports of some flooding along the city's riverfront.

The Lee County Board of Supervisors has declared a state of emergency for their county in the southeastern corner of Iowa, where the Mississippi and Des Moines rivers converge. Officials there expect flooding that will cause damage to public and private property and possibly disrupt power, water and sewer service.
