BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (KWWL) -

KWWL has received 2 Emmy awards for its coverage of last fall's flooding in eastern Iowa.

On Saturday night in Bloomington, Minnesota, the Upper Midwest Emmy recipients were named.

KWWL earned Emmy awards for Morning Newscast & Daytime Newscast.

Both newscasts aired in September 2016 and both featured the KWWL Drone, which gave viewers a real-time perspective of the devastating flooding in eastern Iowa.

"We are grateful and humbled by the recognition for our journalism. Our awards were directly linked to the flooding crisis and KWWL fully recognizes and admires the efforts of all of the many people in our viewing area who helped others through this serious event," said KWWL Vice President & General Manager Jim McKernan.

KWWL has now earned 6 Upper Midwest Regional Emmy awards the past 3 years.
