IOWA CITY, Iowa — Authorities in Johnson County are using a recently obtained former military vehicle (MRAP) to help with flood evacuations in the Hills area.

The quickly rising waters have already surrounded homes in the evacuation area. Sheriff’s officials and the MRAP team are going door-to-door to give evacuation notices and check on people. The evacuation order was approved earlier Wednesday afternoon by the board of supervisors.

The vehicle was used to help transport a woman and her boyfriend to safety earlier today, officials said.

The water is expected to continue rising as the US Army Corps of Engineers further opens the outflow gate at Coralville Lake later today.

Supervisor Janelle Rettig said more evacuations are expected in the morning.
