  1. We just came from Cedar Falls, my hometown, and so far the levees and flood walls downtown are holding, with extra sandbags. I’ve never seen anything like it. Downtown Waterloo, our twin city, is completely closed off, and the National Guard is out in force.

  2. I am also from Cedar Falls and my mom and dad were busy out sandbagging. I will back in a couple of weeks and usually drive through Cedar Rapids. I will be anxious to see if all that water has receded. It is really unbelievable.

  3. My wife just got back from Rock Island, the Illinois side of Davenport and said it was quite bad in Iowa, partially because Illinois has levies.
