AND flood waters inundated Iowa City and the University of Iowa arts campus on Sunday despite what one official called a "Herculean effort" to hold back the water with sandbags. The Iowa River in Iowa City crested at 31.5 feet and was expected to remain at that level through today....Gary Tuchman will be LIVE from Iowa City and Dan Simon from Cedar Rapids as folk try, I repeat, try to go home..
