Cedar Rapids levees along the river


Cedar Rapids is the second-largest city in the USA state of Iowa and the largest in the eastern part of the state.  The city is built on the banks of the Cedar River, which flows into the Iowa River and then into the Mississippi.  Cedar Rapids was hit hard by floods in 2008 (which are sometimes referred to as Iowa's Katrina); roughly one-seventh of the city was underwater.  In this drone video, you'll get a bird's eye view of the city, including the earthworks constructed to minimize future flood damage.
