The IIHR and Iowa Flood Center team is joining the #Strike4BlackLives initiative that calls on academia to spend the day educating themselves and advocating for social justice in their communities. We encourage all visitors to our website to consider participating in the movement as well by having conversations with friends, family, and colleagues about how we can work together to advocate for and take actions that will lead to positive change.

Because of the heavy rainfall and flooding from Tropical Strom Cristobal and with additional rainfall on the way, our team will continue to carry out critical public safety responsibilities. We are closely monitoring flood conditions and ensuring our systems are operating efficiently. For information on flood alerts and forecasts, rainfall conditions, and flood maps, visit the Iowa Flood Information System at
