Train bridge aftermath

Flood of 2008 Aftermath

Trains and their bridges are pushed over, just hangning partway in the water. Cedar Rapids relief efforts scour the city to rebuild this devistated town.

On the corner of I wireless and Seigels on 3rd street, a mysterious optomist exibits a sign of hope to the citizens. "We Survive!"

The Train on the collapsed bridge was infact loaded with gravel. Lets hope that it doesn't fall the rest of the way off the tracks.

Meh meh. Story by, - Shelby.
