Storms this spring pounded southern Iowa counties in particular, and that will cost county budgets. Brian Moore is county engineer for both Ringgold and Decatur counties, and he says heavy rains sparked flash-flood watches, and the water damaged roadways.Flash floods wash gravel off the road, damage bridges, make them fall down or just leave them unsafe. Moore says County road J-55 southeast of Mount Ayr will be closed for two months while flood damage is repaired. He says the cost to the county will be mainly in overtime pay for workers who must repair storm-damaged roads.
