Iowa remains closed

Iowa had trees and power lines down and a few businesses torn up but there are just a few homes with major damage, Police Chief Charles Ipes says.

"It's wet right now and we're tired," he said. The town has set up a triage unit to host the National Guard at Iowa High.

"The city is shut down until such a time that the mayor says it is safe to come in."

He knows of one injury related to Rita. A man was taken to Lake Charles Memorial Hospital after he flipped on his tractor and seriously injured his leg.

Are there any indications of the extent of flooding in Iowa?
