FEMA extends funding for Cedar Rapids demolitions

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Eastern Iowa continues to rebuild from the Flood of 2008.

FEMA has extended funding to demolish damaged homes in Cedar Rapids.  Money was going to run out Tuesday night, stopping demolition.

But a late decision means funding will continue to raze the worst-damage home through November 27th.

500 homes have already been torn down.  There are nearly 200 left.
