Cedar Rapids using flood barriers for first time since 2008

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Cedar Rapids officials say this is the worst flooding they've seen since 2008.

For the first time since then the city is putting out HESCO flood barriers. The barriers build an extra four feet of protection.

Right now, they're only located on Ellis Lane near the entrance to Ellis Park.

If more are added, right in that same area.
