One Week in June: The Iowa Floods of 2008

One Week in June: The Iowa Floods of 2008 begins with the destruction of a century-old suspension bridge in Charles City and follows the crest south through many river communities in a gripping narrative by Jeff Stein.

From Sunday, June 8 through Father’s Day, June 15, 2008, the Cedar River swelled and rolled south. At the same time, to the west, the Iowa River was also growing. The two rivers join, in a confluence, just northeast of Columbus Junction and flow on to the Mississippi River. We knew after the winter snows that the potential was there for flooding. No one, however, could anticipate or adequately prepare for what happened.
