Not quite 1993 for the Squaw

Posted: 12 Aug 2010 07:01 AM

Squaw Creek in Ames approached record levels seen back in 1993 yesterday, but came up a few inches short (18.13" versus 18.5"). The Squaw is the western river in Ames and affects the Iowa State University Campus. Many of you probably saw the water in Hilton Coliseum, that was from the Squaw. The featured image presents a comparison between 1993 and 2010 for the river gauge near Lincoln Way in Ames. With heavy rainfall expected on Friday night, it will be interesting to see how the secondary bump in river flow compares with 1993.

Good = 35
Bad = 2
