Ice jam leaves behind expensive damage in Cedar Rapids


Authorities say property damage to a Cedar Rapids harbor from an ice jam is between $20,000 and $25,000.

The Cedar Rapids River Recreation Commission says last month's ice jam broke electrical poles at the Ellis Boat Harbor on the Cedar River, causing crews to make service repairs to connect boat houses.

Work is expected to be completed by Memorial Day. 

Those ice jams also caused some flooding in residential areas.
