LANSING, Iowa (AP) - Heavy rainfall has forced some streams out of their banks in northeast Iowa, and forecasters say there’s more in store for the area.

Allamakee (al-uh-muh-KEE’) County emergency services coordinator Corey Snitker said Wednesday that he’s gotten reports of 3 and 4 inches of rain overnight. Snitker says the runoff accumulated in low-lying spots and ran over some streets in the northeast corner of the county, especially in Lansing.

The Lansing city clerk and the mayor didn’t immediately return calls from The Associated Press.

Snitker says none of the major county roads is closed but also says more rain is expected.

The National Weather Service’s flash flood watch says two-day totals of more than 7 inches could occur where new storms later Wednesday and overnight track the Tuesday-Wednesday storms.
