Keeping an eye on the waterline

Posted at 7:31 AM on June 19, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Water is big news:

* Southern Minn. wrestles with flooded fields
* Midwest flooding may cause more levee overflows
* Corps increasing water release levels at Watson reservoir

What does that all mean? MPR's Jet Streaming podcast for Wednesday, June 18 kept an eye on the waterline:

Parts of Iowa are under water, and now the floodwaters are heading south down the mighty Mississippi. Where will the next flood strike, and how high will the waters rise? We'll talk with a hydrologist, and we'll check in with the president of the University of Iowa, which has been hard hit by the floods.
