WATERLOO (KWWL) - So far there are no official numbers on how many homes and businesses were flooded this past week.

But, we created a new interactive map to track flooded buildings across eastern Iowa.

If your home or business was flooded, click on the FloodTracker link below to post it to our map.

Once you see the map, click on "Sign in" and log on with the username "Floodtracker" and the password "guest."

Once you've signed in, click on "Edit this map."

Towards the top, there will be a box that says "Go to." Where it says "Your Hometown," enter the street address of the home or business that was flooded and click Enter.

On the right side of the screen there are several markers. Click on the large blue marker, drag and drop it on the specific location of the flooded building.

A box will pop up for marker info. In the box, type the street address and describe the flooding.

When you're finished, click on the "Save it!" button and then sign out.

If you also also have photos or videos, you can upload them to using Show and Tell 7.
