Elkader community comes together to respond to flooding


The city of Elkader, led by the Elkader Fire Department, came together over the weekend to fill and stack sandbags as the Turkey River rose—fueled by rounds of storms that dumped as much as eight inches of rain in northeast Iowa. (Photos by Willis Patenaude)

“The community response is always great," said Elkader Mayor Josh Pope. "Not only did we have people willing to donate equipment, supplies and manpower for sandbagging, we had others who donated food and drink. The sandbagging efforts are organized by our volunteer firefighters. The firefighters also work with the city departments such as police and public works to monitor the need for road closures, getting the word out to campers and residents and monitoring essential services such as our sewer lift stations.”

The Elkader Fire Department also worked through the night to install HESCO barriers in anticipation of the flooding, which was expected to crest at 24 feet.

Volunteers worked tirelessly to install the 300 feet of HESCO barriers and 1,300 sandbags along the river in case it crested higher than expected. The use of the barriers is relatively new and, according to assistant fire chief Caleb Shea, the department shortened the preparation time and the amount of sandbags needed. In the past, the city would’ve needed around 10,000 sandbags and it would’ve taken far longer than the three hours it took 12 to 14 volunteers to fill and set up the barrier.

According to the National Weather Service, the flood level peaked at 22.79 feet late Monday morning, well above the flood stage of 12 feet. Here, pedestrians watch the roiling river from the Keystone Bridge.

The flooding closed down South Main Street and South High Street, and Central School District was closed on Monday.

Congreswoman Ashley Hinson met with Elkader Mayor Josh Pope on Monday, discussing the flood and the mobilization efforts by the fire department and community.
