NWS Says Worst of Flooding Over

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- While several rivers in Iowa are flooding, most of the overflowing water is confined to roads and parks near rivers and is not threatening homes or businesses.
   National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Lee in Des Moines says Tuesday most rivers are receding and the worst of flooding is over.
   Rivers are overflowing because of the unusually wet June. State Climatologist Harry Hillaker says in a report released Monday the statewide average rainfall was nearly 3.7 inches last week, three times normal.
   The Cedar River at Cedar Rapids is in major flood stage but is posing no serious threat.
   Rain chances return to the forecast later in the week but Lee says it's unlikely the rain will be widespread or heavy enough to cause extensive flooding.
