Marble Avenue Flooded

(Le Mars) -- The Floyd River and Willow Creek caused several roads, including Marble Avenue, to be closed as flood waters overflowed the banks.  Residents living in the Willow Creek Addition was cut off from the town for several hours because of the high waters.  The Union Pacific and Chicago Northern Railroads were temporarily shut down when flood waters went over the rail lines.  City officials were also busy over the holiday weekend evacuating campers from the Municipal Park before flood waters would over take the grounds. Le Mars Fire Chief Dave Schipper says several city officials monitored the rising waters throughout the long weekend.
