Flood Alert Update from MidAmerican Energy Company “Due to safety precautions, MidAmerican Energy has begun shutting off all gas meters for residential and non-cooking business customers from Czech Village to the Time Check areas in the Cedar River basin. All cooking customers (i.e. restaurants, etc) in those areas will have gas meters shut off between 5:00 – 8:00 PM tonight. MidAmerican Energy will reassess the situation tomorrow morning and may expand this area to include all business and residential customers in the downtown area from 4th Street East to 4th Street West.”
We begin meeting every morning at 9AM to keep each other posted and make decisions. The wallet sized emergency phone numbers were distributed. We welcomed the staff from Art and Music libraries. Staff continued to help with sandbagging.
