I Got a chance to take a few shots of flood aftermath in my home town, Cedar Rapids Iowa.
Just one of a hundreds and hundreds of streets with gutted house remains waiting for pickup.
Some needed humor
A couple of boys survey several houseboats blocking the river road
A now serene river is framed by the high water mark of refuse lodged in a tree
This flood was record breaking and covered more than a thousand blocks of Cedar Rapids including most of the downtown area, all bridges that access one side of town from another and thousands of homes and business. Water rose to 32 feet above floodstage and went beyond the 500 year flood plain.
