Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today as various local, state and federal agencies make preparations for the possibility of damaging flooding.

“As the danger of damaging floods continues to threaten Eastern Iowa, I remain in close contact with University of Iowa officials, local officials, as well as officials at the Army Corps of Engineers to monitor the situation.  I commend the University for taking precautionary actions to prepare for any flooding that may occur.  With the 10th Anniversary of the Floods of 2003 approaching, we have learned a great deal about how to prepare in advance for the worst situation.  My office and I will continue to coordinate with officials on all levels to determine the best way to move forward.”
