Former UI President Willard “Sandy” Boyd describes his flood experience, noting how most of the bridges and major highways around Iowa City shut down during the flood, effectively cutting some residents off from the rest of the community. He also reminds us that the damage extended far beyond Iowa City, and talks about how the flood destroyed much of downtown Cedar Rapids.
