Heavy Rain Blamed for Dam's Partial Washout
NORA SPRINGS, Iowa (AP) -- Heavy rain has been blamed for the partial washout of the Nora Springs dam in northern Iowa.
Floyd County Emergency Management Coordinator Michael Morlan says the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers inspected the dam last week.
Morlan says the engineers didn't see any reason for immediate concern. Morlan says the engineers just said to watch it.
State officials will be inspecting the dam as well.
Morlan says it would take a lot more rain to take out the entire dam.
