Episode Narrative Flooding from rain and snowmelt in March continued into April. Flooding was the most extensive over the north half of Iowa, particularly along the Des Moines River Basin. Much of the flooding was in agricultural areas and did not have major impacts. Some areas were affected with roads closed yet into April. The rivers had crested during March, so overall flooding was minor to moderate.
