A dam has burst in my home state of Iowa, emptying a nine-mile lake and causing millions of dollars of damage for hundreds of families. Flooding isn’t exactly a new phenomenon for Iowa, but rarely does it lead to the loss of an entire lake.
I’ll update this post as rebuilding projects are announced.
- If you are in the area and have free time this week you can volunteer to haul garbage from private land to a public site. Call Lake Delhi’s flood volunteer coordinator, Barb DeKlotz is (563) 922-2058 or (319) 210-9378.
- Nowhere near Iowa? You can donate to the Grant Wood Area Red Cross’s disaster relief fund on their website.
