this is so not good. this morning the city of iowa city declared that all residents of normandy drive must evacuate. go here for more information. and the gazette is now reporting that I-80 through iowa city and surrounding towns will close tomorrow.
i am so sorry for my old neighbors--and many of them are, in fact, elderly. i wish we were still there in our last house in manville heights, up high on woolf ave., so we could give some of y'all a place to evacuate to. what a mess in iowa right now.
for more information regarding the flood in iowa city, particularly as it applies to the university of iowa campus, there is a new website being updated regularly by the ui news service: uiflood.blogspot.com.
