Iowa City is so screwed... I LIVE!!!

It's supposed to crest 6'-8' higher than that. That's right outside my door, and my parking area is just to the rear of the pic. I'm probably going to have to move my car. One of the biggest streets in town (Dubuque Street) is under 5 feet of water. Oh, and I have to be moved out of this apartment by June 27. Water is supposed to crest in a week.

This is supposedly a "once in 500 year" flood. It just passed the "great flood" of 1993.

Oh, and even better, we have a huge storm coming at us tomorrow I think.




































































and we are supposed to get pretty bad showers for 3 more days. And the 4 feet of increase on the crest of the river was without taking that into account.

I have a couple days until the water will reach my parking spot... in which case it's time to hoof it, and wear the boots. I live on the SECOND floor FTMFW

1) Grab fishing pole
2) Grab Beer
3) sing "end of the world" by REM

Glad i only have earthquakes to really deal with. We flood but the highest ive seen it was halfway up our driveway cause the d00shbag down the street sprays all his lawn clippings down the drain instead of dumping the bag into the yard waste garbage can.

they aren't getting it as bad as the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area. Cedar Rapids will take months to YEARS to recover. Iowa City/Coralville housing for apartments is going to be insane in a month or two. I'm working right now, driving emergency shuttle vans for the nurses and doctors at the hospital. I have a 21 hour day today, but I get paid for it, and I could end up with a 117 hour week....


so some of you may have noticed that I haven't been online in like 3 days. Well... Thursday we went under an optional evacuation, and Friday... not so optional. They had the DNR, fire department, police and a couple other agencies there. They took boats down our road to get people that were stuck in their apartments due to the water being over 10 FEET DEEP down the road. Well.. I got all of my stuff out Friday (thank God). My roommate left under the optional evac, but left his $2000 furniture and his 37" flat screen I was able to get his TV, but by the time we got there, there was already 6" of water in the parking lot... and his furniture has to touch the ground in order to get it under the steps. Therefore... it had to stay.

As of right now, I'm decently sure the water is roughly 3-5 feet high in the 1st level apartments and is supposed to continue to rise until Tuesday. They said there's an outside shot that our 2nd floor apartment can see water. Also, I do believe I qualify for FEMA aide. Sweet... my gas can be comp'd by FEMA for going to work.

Re: Iowa City is so screwed... resizing, sorry

i hear ya jimmy! it's CRAZY! it's pretty bad down here too, but as long as the levy holds, i think we're going to be a lot better then they were first saying. the des moines river crested here (@ ottumwa) last night at 21.6 ft. it's soooo high, about 3 more feet and it will come right over the levy. it's floating 2 of our bridges here and looks like it's gonna take one with it. it's moving south fast and i hear from friends that the mississippi is already very high. they say here that it will start to go down by saturday morning, but who knows. we're supposed to get more rain too.

good luck, let me know if you guys need anything. i have friends in IA City and North Liberty too. Des Moines got hit pretty hard too. be careful! i'll have to get some pics up this weekend.

what part of IA City do you live in? anywhere near campus?

I'm technically in Coralville, 4th Ave. We crested around 31 feet. Should've been 34, and 38 as a max prediction. So we got pretty lucky.
