Rebuilding Across Iowa After July's Severe Storms

Aug 13, 2018

Climate change is coming to Iowa, and with it, more frequent and intense storms. During this hour of River to River, we hear stories of severe weather recovery. 

Marshalltown Mayor Joel Greer joins to discuss the EF-3 tornado that hit town nearly a month ago, and Angie Crees of Bondurant talks about how her roof lifted up and set back down by an EF-2 tornado the same day.

In the second half, host Ben Kieffer talks with Alan Lamb of Des Moines, whose basement filled with sewage water after flash flooding at the beginning of July, Des Moines Assistant City Manager Phil Delafield, and University of Northern Iowa meterology professor Alan Czarnetzki.
