Floodwaters rising after storms deluge heartland
from The Associated Press via The Boston Globe
Flood fighters from small Mississippi River hamlets to the suburbs of Chicago staged a feverish battle to hold back raging rivers, after days of torrential rains soaked much of the Midwest. Mississippi River communities in Iowa, Illinois and Missouri are expected to see significant flooding — some near-record levels — a sharp contrast to just two months ago when the river was approaching record lows. Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana had flooding, too. All told, dozens of Midwestern rivers were well over their banks after rains that dumped up to 6 inches of new water on already saturated soil.
