The water level in Kyrönjoki River on Saturday reached the flood level, reported the national broadcaster Yle.
The floodgates were opened for the water to flow.
National road 3 was closed for traffic in Jalasjärvi in the afternoon and the traffic was directed to take a detour.
The use of flood embankment to shore up flood waters was termed necessary. It, however, will lead to closure of some small roads in some areas in Ilmajoki.
