Des Moines To Lift General Evacuation at 6:00 PM

(3:30 PM) Mayor Cownie of Des Moines has just announced that based on assessments just completed a short while ago, at 6:00 PM today, they plan to discontinue the curfew and general evacuations in the flood plain, with the exception of the Birdland area. They will also at the same time re-open the downtown bridges that have been closed most of the week. He emphasized the importance of being careful, staying away from the levees, and just watching from home.

He also stated that the situation may change if weather, levee or other river conditions change.  The public should check regularly with the media for updates.
