    Eldora

    Sounds like there was some bad weather up there this morning with tennis ball sized hail. Anyone in that area or heard about what's going on?

    My folks were down for the day. They're on their way back to the Cedar Falls (*****) area, and called to tell us that when they got to the curve in Highway 65 north of Hubbard that the corn sans leaves. The rest of their drive will probably be interesting!

    Re: Eldora

    The facebook status of State Senator Steve Sodders...

    Steve Sodders Just got back from Eldora. Nearly every building/house in town has some damage, hail and winds. Very proud of local Police/Fire/EMS working great together. Also we were able to get Gov. declaration of disaster area within hours of disaster. Volunteers 7am at the Hardin County Fairgrounds tomorrow, they will direct you from there.




    Steve Sodders Also, Red Cross set up at Eldora High School. Donation can be sent to Iowa Rivers Red Cross.
    Doesnt look good for Eldora right now.

    Your 4-letter hometown was replaced with 5 asterisks?

    4 letter name + 1 asterisk = 5 asterisks

    My cousin lives in Eldora, and she said they lost most of their windows and had significant roof damage.

    Re: Eldora

    Wow, I wonder if the campground at Rock & Row was full this morning. I was just there last weekend and everyone is usually sleeping in tents.

    Glad we went last weekend & not this one.
