I-680 eastbound into Iowa closed Friday night due to water over the roads, bringing the number of river crossings closed to six, according to our partners at the Omaha World-Herald.

Iowa 5-11 says the road is closed from the Mormon Bridge to I-29. Flooding has fully closed a stretch of I-29 in north Council Bluffs.
