Coralville Strip flooding, looking east (Sat. p.m.)

Coralville's Water Headaches

My hometown is way too wet. These shots show water from the Clear Creek area along the Strip in Coralville. Its ironic that the bridge is the only thing dry for nearly as far as the eye can see. My wife lived in the 4th Ave. apartments when she first moved to town. While they have had water problems before, nothing has compared to what we are seeing now. We know the water is still rising; we can only hope that the damage can be limited somehow.
