(Johnston, Iowa) – Thursday’s episode of The Iowa Journal will examine the impact of this year’s flooding.

Most Iowans this week are reacting to the immediate situations of rising flood waters and sudden tornados, but the aftermath of the storms will ripple through Iowa’s economy for months to come.
