The National Weather Service has issued flash flood warnings for several northeast Iowa counties following heavy overnight rains.

The service said Wednesday that more than 5 1/2 inches has fallen in Dorchester and more than 4 1/4 inches in Riceville and Bluffton.

School has been canceled in Decorah, Riceville and several other towns because of the heavy rain and flooding.
