Higher risk of major spring flood

By Shelia Tomkins

A much higher chance of major spring flooding along the Mississippi River and most of its tributaries across northeast Iowa, southwest Wisconsin and southeast Minnesota was predicted by the National Weather Service in  LaCrosse, Wis., on Thursday, March 7.

The report was the second of the season issued by the NWS, and showed an even higher risk than predicted in its first report, due to additional heavy snow upstream in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

The Driftless Area, known for its deeply carved river valleys and rolling hills, is the perfect habitatfor the American bald eagle. 

The multi-state region which includes portions of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois has become the nesting ground for our nation's symbol. The eagle, which was once nearly extinct, has found a home all throughout Iowa, seeing its greatest numbers returning to the skies of the Driftless Area.

Concerns over safety, health, finances, family and work situations are all contributors to the after-effects of the assault. These challenges can lead to complicated personal and legal questions.
