‘Bomb cyclone’ triggers flooding and forces evacuations in parts of Iowa

Remnants of the snow fall and rain would clear from Denver and the mountain and plains areas by midday, he said.

The quickly rising floods evacuated people from their homes, washed out roads in communities, and left farmers anxious all the water would drown livestock.

Though the storm was expected to carry less snowfall as it moves into the Midwest and the Great Lakes region, the National Weather Service and local officials warned of high winds and possible flash flooding from heavy rains. Thunderstorms and flash flood warnings are also up in MI and Kansas.

Ellenbolt also quoted Tony Mangan of the state's public safety department, who said, "I mean, if you don't have the snow in parts of the state, you have flooding in the southeast and south central parts".

Wisconsin's governor declared a state of emergency Friday as flooding worsened, and Iowa's governor expanded an emergency proclamation issued a day earlier.

But in eastern Nebraska, flooding worsened Friday and remained a big concern in the lower Missouri River region - which is a major source for the Mississippi River - with the weather service issuing warnings of high water along the river and its tributaries from southeastern South Dakota to St. Louis in Missouri.

Emergency crews responded after a vehicle was swept off a road in Norfolk, Nebraska, and rising water along the Elkhorn River prompted evacuations of the eastern side of the city of 24,000 people.

The "bomb cyclone" contributed to a 100-car pileup on Interstate 25 in Colorado Wednesday, which left over 1,000 drivers stranded on the artery for several hours.

"A "bomb cyclone" happens when there's a rapid pressure drop, with a decrease of at least 24 millibars (a measure of atmospheric pressure) over 24 hours known as "bombogenesis", according to the U.S. Weather Channel".

Winds of more than 100 miles per hour have slammed into San Augustin Pass, New Mexico, and Pine Springs, Texas.

Air travel has also been severely affected by the bomb cyclone.

A storm like this brings with it all sorts of hazardous weather.

In the Texas Panhandle, a utility worker was killed while working to restore power amid strong winds pushed in by the storm.

The storm also contributed to the death of Daniel Groves, a Colorado State Patrol officer who was hit and killed by a auto as he helped another driver who had slid off Interstate 76 near Denver.

The Colorado National Guard announced it had rescued 93 people and two dogs after inspecting about 250 vehicles.

Five people were hurt and 150 dairy cows had to be euthanized when a tornado hit the small town of Dexter, New Mexico. A tornado touched down Thursday in western Kentucky, damaging utility lines and trees.

In mid-Michigan, authorities reported two tornadoes and possibly a third, in Shiawassee County and nearby Genesee County. No deaths or injuries have been reported as yet. Groves had gotten out of his patrol auto to check on another vehicle that had slid off the road, police said.
