Ames Iowa Flooding, (The Huffington Post) — Ames, Iowa, population 56,000, is experiencing severe flooding, the worst in years, after three consecutive nights of storms.
The city in central Iowa, is expected to break records set in 1993, and Skunk River and Squaw Creek are on the way to the crest at all times-day highs.
Complications of flooding are accumulating. The city was forced to cut its main water supply after a water main broke under the water, leaving its inhabitants without drinking water.
Hundreds of people have been forced from their homes and the Colosseum Iowa State Hilton has been buried several feet under water, by the Des Moines Register.
