Our I9 team got our hands on the location of properties where the city of Cedar Rapids considers it unsafe to be occupied because there are structural issues, like a tree falling through a roof.

Our KCRG First Alert Weather Team then picked out a sample size of a few random points and overlayed the map onto a map showing the wind speed of the derecho on Monday, August 10.
