Towns along the Mississippi River are preparing for spring
flooding amidst the challenges of the coronavirus outbreak.
“These two disasters pose a new and significant threat to those up and down the Mississippi River corridor.”
Brownfield interviewed Bettendorf, Iowa Mayor Bob Gallagher as
the first significant spring storm swept over the Quad Cities Thursday. He says
with more knowledge and milder flood predictions they are hopeful that this
year will not be a repeat of 2019, which brought the highest level of unplanted
crop land the area had ever seen.
