Scott County Emergency Management is encouraging all residents to maintain your current flood protection. Based on preliminary projections, the Mississippi could reach previously crested height, or higher. Projections are subject to change. We are asking all residents along the rivers to maintain their situational awareness in continuing to monitor the river levels.
With the river maintaining its higher than normal levels at a “Major” flood stage, we would like to remind all residents that there are many resources that are available to them during the flood. They include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Temporary shelter housing
  • Potable water
  • Cleanup kits
  • Individual Assistance grant through the State of Iowa
  • Sand & Sandbags

Residents who are in need of emergency assistance are encouraged to call 911.
