Flooding Updates from Charles City, Waterloo, Cedar Falls, & Cedar Rapids

Sep 26, 2016

Recent heavy rains have put the Cedar River and many streams at, or above, flood levels in what could be the worst flooding to hit the state since 2008. Communities are responding with sandbagging efforts and thousands of residents have evacuated their homes.

On the first segment of today's River to River, host Ben Kieffer checks in with those living and working in Charles City, Waterloo, Cedar Falls, and Cedar Rapids, including Molly Montag of Mason City Globe Gazette, Pat Kinney of the WCF Courier, Brian Morelli of The Gazette, and Cedar Rapids Mayor Ron Corbett.

In the second half of the program, Iowa State University English professor Ben Crosby and 2002 GOP Iowa gubernatorial nominee Doug Gross discuss their predictions for the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
