Deadly flooding leads to dam failure, bridge collapse in Midwest

Days and days of heavy rain last week in the Midwest has created some of the worst flooding the region has seen in years. Water in Minnesota ate away at the banks surrounding a dam leading to a flow around the barrier. In South Dakota, a railroad bridge collapsed. Additional rain expected Tuesday could make a bad situation worse. At least two people have died during the flooding event, according to officials.

More severe weather is expected across the Midwest on Tuesday, with the worst storms anticipated in a swath that stretches from Nebraska to Ohio. Cities such as Chicago, Indianapolis, Kansas City and St. Louis are included in that area.
