Due to increasing levels of the Iowa River in Iowa City, the City of Iowa City has begun contacting residents and business owners in these flood-prone areas about preparation for evacuations:

  • Parkview Terrace
  • Taft Speedway and Idyllwild
  • Cole and Thatcher Mobile Home Courts
  • South Gilbert and Stevens Drive
  • Rocky Shore Drive and Highway 6.  

Recommended evacuations are expected along Normandy Drive and Taft Speedway later today. Mandatory evacuations have not been issued to date, but may be issued based on the changing flooding conditions in neighborhoods.
