Episode Narrative A strong low pressure system tracked across northern Iowa in the evening hours of April 26th. This produced strong thunderstorms with very heavy rainfall across parts of northeast Iowa. The heavy rainfall caused mudslides and flooded rural roadways in Clayton County.
Event Narrative Many area creeks and fields remained flooded even as flash flooding receded. Many area roads were underwater for parts of the night and both the Turkey and Volga Rivers rose significantly.
