Quotes

"Competitions all really come down to one taste of the meats. So we have to make sure that we get all of the flavor in one bite for the entire meat. It is not as easy as it looks" said Shannon Sundine who started the Storm Lake based Iowa Wild Hogs championship bbq team
Jared Katke, Rock Church associate pastor and director of Project 1013, says, "We want to restore hope, and we want to let the members of our community know that it doesn't matter what side of town you live on. We are all neighbors, and what's good for one is good for the other."
"What that means to us and why that's a concern is that there just isn't a lot of storage out there in the rivers or the wetlands and lakes. And so anywhere we get a lot of rain, we're pretty much primed for flooding" said USGS hydrologist James Fallon. Here's an update on the impact of flooding around the state
"All that rain has to go somewhere and while the smaller streams will start going down and the fields will dry out some, the main stem rivers will continue to rise for a week or more" said Craig Schmidt , the National Weather Service's hydrologist in Chanhassen
