Please keep the city of Cedar Rapids and the state of Iowa in your thoughts. We are experiencing a serious flooding disaster right now. Our downtown area is almost completely underwater and the water is still rising. Luckily, myself and my family are far enough away from the river that we are not in danger. We are still feeling the effects of it and it will take a long time before our city will recover. Please keep the families and businesses that are in the flooding areas in your thoughts.
Here are a few photos of what is happening:
This is a shot of our government offices. The 3 lines in the water are bridges that are now underwater.
This is a shot of some residential areas. A photo of part of downtown--the library and science station. A street downtown.
