Sandbagging into the Night in New Bohemian Neighborhood
Updated: Thursday, May 30 2013, 10:49 PM CDT
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- Vendors at NewBo City Market didn't expect flooding so soon after being built.
"It's not if, but when we'll get water," said Teresa Pinkerton, That One Cupcake Place owner.
"I haven't wrapped my head around it. We're just taking it as it comes," Teresa said.
Like the rest of the business owners, she's getting everything she can out now before flood waters rise.
"There may be some water in here," Patrick Rashed said.
Next door, Patrick is racing to save the Caribbean Kitchen.
"We're hoping that it doesn't get as bad as we think it might get," Patrick said.
Outside the market, volunteers like Pam Schneider fill sandbags to sprinkle throughout New Bohemia.
"You just gotta do something, anything," she said. "It's just very upsetting to know they might get flooded again."
Coe College ROTC cadets even stopped by after their training to help.
"Since we live here, it's our job to help out too," cadet Greg Ponder said.
Much like the NewBo community after 2008, these folks know they'll recover from whatever happens.
"We're going to come right back even stronger," Teresa said.
The Cedar Rapids Police Department asks people to stay away from the flood-prone areas if you don't need to be down there. They also ask folks to stay off the bridges over the water.
