Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

U.S. Highway 63 south of Tama remained closed at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, due to flooding. The roadway is blocked off just north of the Iowa River bridge on Tama's far south side.

The Iowa Department of Transportation says the U.S. 30 Expressway near Montour between north and south T47 has restricted lanes of traffic.

A number of county roads are closed due to high water.
