Photo of houses swept away down Cedar River, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Buildings and debris are seen floating in the Cedar River against a railroad bridge Saturday, June 14, 2008, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Days after it rose out of its banks on its way to record flooding in Cedar Rapids, the Cedar River has forced at least 24,000 people from their homes, emergency officials said Saturday.

    These were houseboats from the river marina upstream. Still very sad.
