IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The University of Iowa is sending HESCO barriers to Sioux City as they continue to prepare for flooding on the Missouri River.

They began loading about 5,400 linear feet of the flood barriers onto flat bed trucks Monday morning.

The barriers will be distributed throughout western Iowa.

The university will get replacement barriers next week at no cost.

The University of Iowa has had the HESCO barriers since the 2008 floods devastated parts of the campus.
