Remembering the floods of '93, 30 years later

The floods of '93 were some of the most costly and impactful floods to ever occur in Iowa. And on July 9th, 1993, those flood waters came to Ames when the Ioway Creek crested 11.5 feet above flood stage. The result was more than $7.5 million in damages to Iowa State University, and it took several months to clean-up. But the Iowa State spirit of working together no matter the challenge got the university back on its feet quickly and made it more resilient than ever.
