I went over to Cedar Rapids with a group from my church to do a little flood relief. All I can really say is that it was 100 times worse than I imagined. 5,038 houses were effected by the flooding in Cedar Rapids. It will take 4 years of continuous volunteer work to get Cedar Rapids looking anything like it did before the flood.
Below are some pictures from the first day of work.
>We worked on two houses on Thursday. Unfortunately the second house we worked on could not be saved.
