Iowa Communities Struggle to Rebuild After Derecho Storm: ‘We Need Help’
A sudden and devastating storm known as a Derecho tore through parts of Iowa last week, and some people are still wondering what hit them. Rob Merritt lives in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and shared his experience with the storm and its aftermath. “The state has been hit so, so badly that it's almost easier for me to say what we don't need, because we kind of need everything right now. I really don't think that I can exaggerate how bad it is,” he told Inside Edition Digital.
