Flooding at NCSM&L in Cedar Rapids, Iowa
I received this notice today from the Slovak-American Society of Washington (SASW). The devastation in Iowa is being felt by so many individuals and also by those who work to preserve Czech and Slovak History. Thoughts and prayers are with everyone who have gone through this disaster.
The National Czech and Slovak Museum & Library in Cedar Rapids has been caught in the flooding in that city. NCSM&L has water up to the ceiling on its first floor, and the water is still rising. Unfortunately, the flooding occurred so fast that staff were able to get only a few things out of the first floor. SASW will send out more information as it becomes available.
