IOWA CITY, Iowa -- American flags are flying all across Eastern Iowa today, the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

In North Liberty, the fire department is flying a large flag from a fire truck on an overpass above Interstate 380. Flags on all public buildings are at half staff in memory of the victims and the attack.

Many people have also placed flags outside their homes. In Riverside, dozens of flags are hanging from houses.

Flags are also lining the streets of one Eastern Iowa neighborhood just off Highway 22 in Washington County.
