Temporary flood protection in downtown Davenport fails  (Iowa)

"DAVENPORT, Iowa (KCRG) - Temporary flood protection measures have failed in downtown Davenport leading to inundation of previously dry areas near the Mississippi River, according to emergency managers and the Quad Cities National Weather Service.

Officials reported a failure in the HESCO barrier, a type of sand-filled temporary flood wall, near the intersection of Second Street and Pershing Avenue.

At 4:37 p.m., emergency management described the area of inundation as along a five-block stretch of Second Street from Ripley Street to Pershing Avenue. People were rescued off of a roof of at least one building, and Arsenal Bridge has been closed.

The Weather Service also reported stranded cars and water rescues underway in the affected area, according to emergency managers.

The Weather Service now says that the water levels behind the levee breach have stabilized, but will likely still increase as the level of the Mississippi goes slightly higher until Wednesday evening.

Gov. Kim Reynolds said in a statement on Twitter that her office was in contact with various state and local officials on the matter, and is making state resources available."
