BOAT RIDE: A Tour Of The Flooding

Posted on: 12:22 am, May 31, 2013, by

Flood warnings aren’t keeping everyone off the water.

Channel 13 tagged along with a Polk County resident Thursday evening for a tour of Saylorville Lake and the Des Moines River.

The footage shows just how far the river stretches onto what used to be dry land.

The ride takes in Ledges State Park and Jester Park.

The flooding roundup also shows the extensive floodwaters around Sandpiper Beach, Cherry Glen, the Saylorville spillway, Birdland Marina, a submerged Simon Estes Amphitheater, debris blocking 6th Street Bridge and the relentless creep towards Principal Park.
