Branstad To Tour Vinton, Other Flood-Damaged Cities
Gov. Terry Branstad will be making his third trip to eastern Iowa to survey flood damage when he visits three cities on Wednesday (Sept. 28, 2016).
Iowa's top-elected official is scheduled to tour the water-logged city of Vinton from noon until 1 p.m., before heading to Palo and Cedar Rapids. Branstad will be in Palo from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., before visiting Cedar Rapids from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Branstad will be joined on the tour by other state officials, including Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds, Iowa National Guard Adjutant General Timothy Orr and Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management Director Mark Schouton.
The governor's trip to view damage in the flood-ravaged region follows two other similar visits he made in recent days. Branstad got a first-hand look at the devastation in Greene and Charles City Monday afternoon. He toured Clarksville, Shell Rock and Cedar Rapids on Saturday.
