Missouri River flooding near Interstate 29 in Mills County.
EPIC END TO WINTER

Dozens of families were forced from their homes, farmsteads were flooded and roads throughout Mills County and southwest Iowa were closed late last week and over the weekend as flood waters from the Missouri River ravaged western Mills and Fremont Counties. The historic late winter flood is being compared to the famous Easter flood of 1952.

Mills County Emergency Management Director Larry Hurst said the impact area is considerably larger than the summer flood of 2011 - stretching from the stateline to the Loess Hills in many areas.
