Description

Hear University of Iowa Professor Steve McGuire, a then-resident of the Mosquito Flats neighborhood, discuss the tension that characterized the neighborhood sandbagging efforts during the 2008 flood. While many community members remember the flood as a moment of community cooperation and resilience, McGuire sheds light on conflicts rarely discussed in public. Tempers ran high, he notes, especially when decisions were made to mitigate neighborhood damage but constructing sand bag walls that left some properties more vulnerable than others.
