Sandbagging, cleanup efforts continue in Rock Rapids, Iowa

Posted: Updated:
Volunteers continue to fill sandbags and cleanup in Rock Rapids, Iowa after widespread flooding in the community.

According to city officials, as many as 50 houses are underwater in the northern part of the town after the Rock River expanded beyond its banks Monday night into Tuesday morning.

Heavy rainfall in southwest Minnesota and northwest Iowa have caused flooding across the region. Much of the excess water has ended up in Rock River.

Several residents have told a KSFY News crew on the ground they have never seen water levels this high.
