Historic 500-year midwest flood
The National Weather Service called flooding in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, a "historic hydrologic event" Thursday as the swollen river poured over its banks at 500-year flood levels, forcing the evacuation of nearly 4,000 homes.

The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for the Cedar River in east central Iowa Thursday, saying residents should expect "unprecedented river crests" and calling the situation serious. One of the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, levees already has broken.

"The rest of the levees in the city have not broken down but what the problem is is the water went way up over the top well over a foot over the top of the levees," Dave Koch, the city's public information officer, told FOX News, adding "it's a 500-year flood and it just overwhelmed us."

The Midwest has been inundated with floods in recent days, with a man dying Thursday in Albert Lea, Minn., after his vehicle fell into a flooded stream. Two others were rescued.

Officials estimated that 100 blocks in Cedar Rapids were under water. The National Weather Service called flooding in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, a "historic hydrologic event" Thursday as the swollen river poured over its banks at 500-year flood levels, forcing the evacuation of nearly 4,000 homes.

Re: Historic 500-year midwest flood
KWWL reporter Ron Steel said that water has NOT been this high in Cedar Rapids since 1929. NOBODY has been hurt or killed by the flooding in Cedar Rapids.

The risk far outweighs any benefit as the risk will vary from child to child.
