The recent midwest flooding has hit Iowa particularly hard. My thoughts are with those whose lives have been directly affected. I also, however, want to recognize the University of Iowa‘s particularly effective use of Web 2.0 tools to document the ongoing crisis and the university’s response: they have been maintaining a very informative flood blog and posting a pretty amazing set of photos on Flickr. It looks like the water is beginning to recede around the Iowa campus, which likely means the beginning of what will hopefully not be too protracted a summer cleanup.
