Homeowner Joye A McKusick recalls the 2008 flood
Mosquito Flats resident Joye McKusick describes how she and her husband were evacuated from their home only return to a severely damaged structure several months later. Joye decided to repair and rebuild, and lives just yards from the Iowa River today. Many community members have been highly critical of FEMA and other state and federal agency responses to the flood. McKusick, on the other hand, applauds such organizations for quickly and clearly communicating the types of assistance available to flood victims.
