University of Iowa
Douglas Jones, a University of Iowa Professor of Computer Science, discusses the 140 families who became refugees because of the flood and recounts he and his wife’s experience during what he calls President George W. Bush’s “disaster junket.” Cognizant of the community’s need to remember the 2008 flood, Jones presciently walked around Iowa City in the days and months afterward, photographing the devastation and recovery efforts. Many of his photos are featured on this site.
