And what do you know, 9 months later and nothing happened. Phew! Dodged that bullet. Time to next major flood displacing thousands in this town? T-minus 10-30 years.

You guys sure have a great imagination. Right now the ground is still frozen so the rainwater and melting snow has no where to go. Relax, we have a long way to go before downtown is under water again. Not in this lifetime!!

I have seen the rising waters and from what I see at this point, it is not going to flood as bad as it did last year. However, if the rain continues this pattern, the water could come precariously close to the spillway at the coralville reservoir.
