Weather service issues flash flood warning after Missouri River levee fails near Hamburg, Iowa
HAMBURG, Iowa - The National Weather Service says a levee has failed near Hamburg and has issued a flash flood warning for the area.

The weather service warning says the levee failure occurred shortly before 11 a.m. Monday. Hydrologist Dave Pearson says the breach created a 30-foot-wide hole in the northwest Missouri levee that had three partial breaches last week.

Members Of The 185th Fighter Wing Start A New Mission

SIOUX CITY - Members of the 185th Fighter Wing started a new mission closer to the ground Friday evening as they began patrolling dikes in Riverside.

"This is precautionary only," Fire Marshal Chuck Hirsch said Friday during the press briefing on the flooding situation. "We need to watch the Big Sioux levees."

Before airmen started on foot patrol, Hirsch said, "They're getting some instruction from the (U.S. Army) Corps of Engineers on what to look for and what it means and how to apply sandbags until the rapid deployment gets there."

Sioux City Fire Rescue has a new rapid response levee protection truck to answer emergency calls. The truck can drive through up to 5 feet of water to deliver sandbags and other equipment for quick repairs.

"We have 12 airmen" assigned to the levee patrol duty, Lt. Col. Stephanie Samenus, 185th Air Refueling Wing spokeswoman, said. "They went out today and trained with the corps in Riverside. They will be there as long as needed."

She said the airmen will work in shifts around the clock. Those watching the levees will be both full time and part time Air National Guard members. The 185th has 350 at its Sioux City base who work full time and another 600 who work part time, Samenus noted.

The public is asked not to approach or ask the airmen questions as they are on duty, city officials emphasized.

With the city's and Woodbury County's resources spread thin due to the Missouri River flooding, Hirsch said Police Chief Doug Young and Gary Brown, county disaster and emergency services director, asked the 185th to provide the manpower.
