We had our worst flooding in history this past Wednesday. Since 2:30 pm on that day we could not use our water in the whole city because it was contaminated. We had to boil water before we could drink it. Many of the restaurants had to be closed. We had to conserve water for several days so no laundry to do or no dishwasher to use. Our city has done a great job and yesterday we finally received the okay to drink water from tap again. Yeah! Thank you to all whole has helped Ames get back on their feet. We are still in the process of cleaning up the areas that were mostly flooded. That will take sometime. Thank you for everyone and the states who are helping out!
Here is a video of the flood:
