NEW HARTFORD - The National Weather Service says a levee in New Hartford has failed. Highway 14 north of Parkersburg is closed along with Highway 57 west at Aplington. Highway 57 east is also closed in New Hartford.

The National Weather Service is forecasting the first ever major flood along Beaver Creek in New Hartford. It's expected to crest at a new record sometime on Monday.

This latest round of weather is another blow to an area hit by an EF-5 tornado just two weeks ago. The tornado killed 6 in Parkersburg, 2 others in New Hartford.
