Voluntary Evacuations in Black Hawk Co.

Updated: Thursday, May 30 2013, 12:56 PM CDT
DUNKERTON, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- Emergency officials in Black Hawk County have ordered voluntary evacuations in parts of the county as heavy rains pushed flood waters even higher.
The first voluntary evacuation was ordered Thursday morning for the downtown area of Dunkerton.
Later in the morning, officials went to as many as 20 homes along Zaneta and Waters Roads near Hudson and asked residents to leave.  Emergency officials say only a handful chose to stay.
More rain is in the forecast and that's prompted Black Hawk County to request a disaster declaration from Governor Branstad.  No word on when a decision will be made on that request.
