Flooding Closes Highway 13 in Manchester
There's nothing like the sound of your sump pump running in October to remind you that sometimes, fall can get off to a wet start. Portions of Eastern Iowa have seen between 2 and 6 inches of rain the past several days and rivers and streams are beginning to show the signs. Manchester is no stranger to problems with flooding and the Maquoketa River is once again rearing its ugly head.
The Maquoketa River is expected to stay in major flood stage through Thursday before falling on Friday. But more rain is forecast for the area late Friday night into Saturday.
