On Tuesday afternoon April 30th, flood protection on River Dr at Pershing Ave in Davenport failed.  The area of Pershing Ave, Iowa St, and E 2nd St was inundated with water in a matter of minutes.  Many businesses, parking lots, apartment complexes were quickly impacted by the rising water.  Davenport city officials say the cause of the failure is unknown at this time.  City officials are asking people not to be around the flood water in downtown Davenport unless absolutely necessary.  A flash flood emergency was issued at 3:54 pm by the National Weather Service in the Quad Cities for this event.
