KIMT NEWS 3 – Another round of flash flooding in North Iowa Sunday night, and Hancock and Winnebago Counties are a couple of the hardest hit areas.
Forest City Police Department is advising no travel this evening. According to a tweet, the community is starting the process of sandbagging.
Winnebago County Emergency Management Coordinator tells KIMT there were water rescues earlier Sunday near the Westgate subdivision.
Vehicles began to float away, and at least three people needed to be rescued. Power lines are down on the north side of the city, as well as trees and branches.
Authorities are advising people to stay at home until the damage can be assessed.
Mason City Police are watching water levels in the Winnebago River following heavy rain in Forest City. Residents who live near the river should continue to monitor water levels and be ready for the water to rise very quickly and even leave the banks.
