CR flood, Czech Village homes

As I walked with strike team, I would occasionally wander off a bit to photograph the damage to the homes in the Southwest Cedar Rapids Czech Village neighborhood. Obviously, this is just a glimpse of what we'll see in the weeks to come as the water continues to go down.

This garage had floated down the street and bumped up against this house. Water lines on the homes show you how far the water has gone down, but there's still quite a bit left.

Someone is missing a back deck.. and a rather nice one, at that. It looks like the water picked it up and deposited it in this front yard, nearly intact.

Washed-out basements were startlingly common in some neighborhoods.
