Temperature turnaround creates flooding problem in Alexandria
ALEXANDRIA - A sudden 69-degree shift in temperatures created flooding problems in Douglas County this week.
Temperatures shot up from a low of 17-degrees below zero on March 12 to a high of 52 degrees on March 16.
Because the ground and culverts were still frozen, all that rapidly melting snow had nowhere to go - but across yards, streets and boulevards.
The good news: As the ground warms, the flooding has ebbed.
