This post has been updated as of Monday morning, Aug. 17. I have put a link to another article listing more groups providing assistance in the area.
My oldest kid moved out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa pretty recently and still has good friends there. He dodged a storm such as the state had never seen. For anyone who hasn’t heard about the absolute destruction there from a derecho, I’m linking to a couple of articles. The second one lists relief organizations working in the area. The region is devastated, Cedar Rapids especially. No part of the city was spared. Please help if you can.
This article from the Iowa Starting Line, details the state of things currently.
This one, from KWWL, tells how we can help.
More groups providing aid, from KCCI in Des Moines.
