Millions of acres of damaged farmland in Iowa were seen after a deadly explosion in the Midwest earlier this week, and major damage was reported.

The path of Hurricane Delta's destruction is shown in this satellite image provided by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Millions of hectares of corn, soybeans, cotton, wheat and other crops have been devastated by a powerful "derecho" storm.

Winneshiek County officials say the worst flood in Iowa since the current levee system was introduced in 1940. The worst Cedar Rapids recorded in 2008 was 6 feet above flood water, causing more than 10,000 people to be evacuated and other parts of the city to flood.
However, the lessons of 1993 have helped prevent or otherwise repair the damage in Cedar Rapids, which was greater than expected. One example is how the city of Des Moines raised its levees and largely withstood the flood wall and levee. A number of towns and rural areas were badly flooded, with the most extreme being the Cedar Flood, but for Iowa City the extent of the damage was less than expected. The River Moines has had some minor flooding in recent days, according to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
Waterloo and Cedar Falls spent the 1960s building levees and flood gates and building flood walls after three floods. The flooding caused more than $1.5 million in damage to Dubuque's levee system, according to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
In Iowa City, the University of Iowa campus is at risk and there has been severe flooding. In Waterloo, a small, historic, unincorporated area of Dorchester on the left bank of Waterloo Creek, severe flooding occurred, according to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. The Iowa State University campus in Cedar Falls was also damaged in the 2008 flood.
Three deaths in Iowa were attributed to a deregulation that swept across the Midwest, and the image shown was from CopernicusEU, which is shown using data from the Sentinel-2 satellite. This interactive satellite map allows you to examine Iowa water damage in the aftermath of the storm, as seen in this August 12, 2020 satellite image. The derecho-affected Iowa county is outlined, but look for the county outside the domain. A field damaged by a storm was captured the day after the storms, the Iowa State University campus in Cedar Falls and a field in Waterloo captured by satellite images.
Additional officers were deployed to Cedar Rapids police to help patrol flood-affected areas and respond to excessive calls for help. After KGAN aired a report about growing concerns about water damage in the Cedar Falls area, FEMA held a meeting with Cedar Rapids residents, though FEMA declined to comment on the report.
