Hoping for the best for Mefites in eastern Iowa. I was CR born and raised, and just watching the feed
on KCRG is ...disturbing. It looks like the height of the Cedar River is estimated at 25.4 feet, and it hasn't crested yet
. They've lost a railroad bridge
downtown so far, and the news feed keeps tracking the rise of the river by standing outside the studio and watching the water approaching.
Of course, it's not just Cedar Rapids. They're going to close 30 miles of I-80
(the highway that runs from New Jersey to San Fransisco). They're evacuating areas of Corralville
. Vinton is under water. They're being asked to not flush the toilets in Decorah.
Stay dry, people.
