Heartbreaking drive across Iowa today. These pics don’t do it anything close to justice.
Every cornfield from Cedar Rapids to Marshalltown looked like this or worse. That’s a 70 mile stretch on US 30; and I didn’t venture north, which I’m told is worse. Basically if the corn crop from Clinton to Taylorville were wiped out...in one storm...unbelievable.
Cornfields look like pastures. The corn that is standing is shredded. Every tree line has tops ripped out. Homes and farms damaged; some buildings destroyed. Soybeans don’t look to be effected, but there’s a lot of debris across the countryside.
I hope these farm families and communities get the support they deserve. It’s indescribable the amount of damage....Jared
