My City is Going Under

The north end of the INRR bridge
In the middle of this picture is all you can see what's left of this bridge.
It collapse yesterday around 2:30 in the afternoon

Waterloo Mayor Timothy Hurley is strongly discouraging travel into downtown Waterloo due to the rising flood waters. Access to the downtown area is very limited. All non-essential persons should stay out of the downtown Waterloo area until further notice. Mayor Hurley is asking for everyone's cooperation as we continue to work through this incident.
The City of Waterloo has an IMMEDIATE NEED for volunteers to assist with sandbagging
We wish to thank those who have been volunteering. Additional volunteers are needed immediately. Volunteers should report to the Street Department at 1601 Blackhawk Street.
Two weeks ago we went through a EF-5 Tornado = Wind speed >200 mph
