Anyone know if Hamburg Bend is flooded?

How about a good set of directions to get there?

TIA

From what I read online its an island in the middle of the Missouri River (Hamburg Bend WMA, Right?) and river traffic is forbidden right now.

I think the island is part of it.  I believe there also is an area that is (was?) on the bank of the river.

From what I have seen in areas north of there it is most likely flooded( or at least part of it).As for directions,take highway 75 south out of Nebraska City and turn left at the sign for the OPPD power plant. Follow that road to the south side of the plant and you are there.The road on the south side runs straight into the north entrance and if you take it about a little further to the south you will come to a "t" turn left there and you will be at the south entrance.

The levee at Hamburg just broke...

That was the one on the Iowa side of the river that has had 2 previous holes that was expected to fail.  It does not effect Hamburg Bend WMA.  I would think things in there are pretty wet from the high water table, and the WMA lies between the Levee and the river so it could be flooded anyway.
