This past weekend my hometown Waukon, Iowa was struck by a devastating flood. And the worst part is, the rain is only continuing. There are more storms headed that way. It kills me that I am not home to help with all the cleanup. I will be helping with whatever is left when I return home, but am really hoping that the support continues and they can get it cleaned up before I get home.
Many businesses downtown were destroyed, and one even started on fire. Our newspaper office is destroyed, and many places downtown had horrible damage. And the neighboring town had multiple mudslides. The support from the surrounding communities have been wonderful. Makes me feel good as a resident of the town to have others support.
