Monday, June 16, 2008

The waters of the Cedar River are starting to recede in eastern Iowa, an area that was forced to evacuate nearly 24,000 people after heavy rains pounded the area. As residents slowly return, they are finding high waters remain. Iowa public media correspondent Dean Borg speaks with The Takeaway from his home outside Cedar Rapids.

I would be curious to understand the scale of this natural disaster compared with Katrina in terms of sheer numbers and economic loss.... Also, are there man-made components in terms of levies like New Orleans? Finally, it would be interesting to trace whether there is an environmental/global warming component to this disaster as well...
