IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Iowa Governor Chet Culver is coming to eastern Iowa to meet with people impacted by last summer's devastating floods.

The Governor's visit will begin in the original Governor's Office, where the Governor will sign a proclamation declaring March 2009 as Flood Awareness Month in Iowa.

Culver will then hold a meeting with local officials from Iowa City, Coralville, Johnson County and the University of Iowa to discuss their recovery efforts following last year's floods and what assistance is still needed to rebuild as well as prevent future disasters.
