Over the past 12 months, Iowa has seen the wettest stretch on record. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reports that May has come in as the sixth wettest month on record, according to the latest Water Summary Update. Tim Hall, the DNR’s coordinator of hydrology resources says that even though we have entered June, flooding still remains a concern on both the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. Stream flows across much of the state increased from normal and above normal conditions in April to much above and high in May, and they are still sitting at above normal. Temperatures averaged cooler, and we recorded the 34th coolest 12 month period in the 124 years that records have been kept.
