NWS flood severity forecasts
The featured map is a summary of current forecasted flooding impacts. A good portion of this map is or will be experiencing major flooding with river levels at or above 1993. The immediate impacts are to property along the rivers and closed roads due to washouts or water over the road. Another major impact is currently playing out in Iowa's water logged fields with the corn and soy crops not fully planted and well behind on growth. The crops need to see the bright sunshine and so do many of us.

Good = 55
Bad = 27
