We’re tackling the topic of flooding: Local 4 News Chief Meteorologist Andy McCray joins us from the Milan Maid-Rite for Local 4 News Over Coffee — a roundtable discussion with community leaders on issues in our area.
You can watch all of the segments from our special broadcast in the videos above, then watch as we extended the conversation to OurQuadCities.com and on our Facebook page with the live online broadcast below.
It’s been a little over a week now since a portion of the HESCO barrier breached in downtown Davenport.
Several businesses and people who live downtown were affected.
Those effects are still being felt today.
It happened April 30.
Part of the barrier on River Drive and Pershing Street gave way, allowing water that had been standing there for days to rush in and fill part of downtown.
Since then, the waters have started to recede.
But the damage has already been done to several buildings along the river.
Potentially millions of dollars in property damage and clean-up will have to be dealt with over the next several months… and possibly beyond.
That’s the subject of this morning’s Local 4 News Over Coffee.
We’ve assembled a group of several different members of the community as we hear their stories of how they were affected and talk about what happens next.
Join Chief Meteorologist Andy McCray as he heads the discussion today on Local 4 News This Morning from the Maid-Rite in Milan.
