The Iowa Flood Information System, a powerful tool developed at the Iowa Flood Center to help Iowans keep track of current and potential flood conditions in real time across the state, is now on Twitter: @IFIS_Warnings.

Following the Twitter handle will give users another way to keep track of flood alert levels in their part of the state. Each tweet from @IFIS_Warnings gives a flood alert update from a different Iowa river at a specific Iowa city, indicating either an increase, decrease or cancellation of a flood warning.

IFIS remains relevant for Iowans even in December, with record rains causing flooding in Des Moines and across the state Monday, closing roads and causing headaches for commuters. Several counties received more than three inches of rain in the unseasonal storm.
