Floods, cont’d

A reader forwards a gallery of devastation, here, noting, “These cities (C.R. and Iowa City the most, I think) will be picking up the pieces of this for quite a long time because – just like in N.O. – this wasn’t just water, but heavy chemical and petroleum based pollutants mixing in with the water. And now that stuff is in every building in the flooded area, which for C.R. at least, is basically a very large radius from the center of the city.”
