A Flood of Support

The images on the news of floodwaters gushing through the South bring back memories of the devastation caused by the Flood of 2008. Three years later, Iowa City and many other communities are still in the process of rebuilding. Yet that hasn’t stopped Iowans from helping their Southern neighbors in need.

The UI has lent flood barriers to communities at risk of rising waters. The donation will help the company who manufactures the barriers to keep up with the demand until the threat subsides. With the risk of spring flooding low in Iowa City, it’s the perfect time for the UI community to pay it forward.
