Celebrating the rebuilding efforts in the Mt. Vernon and Lisbon, Iowa farming communities.
The Community Reveal
Last year brought many unpredictable challenges, but none as catastrophic as the derecho that hit Iowa last August. While this powerful storm was devastating, it wasn't as powerful as the resilience of the Iowa farming community.
Above and Beyond
It took a community to rebuild, and we wanted to recognize some of the people who went the extra mile in their efforts, from farmers to first responders, local business owners to next door neighbors. All working together toward a common goal. We recognize and honor all of your service to this great community.
Relive the Response
It was a day they'll remember forever. Forty minutes of unrelenting wind left unimaginable damage in its wake. This story isn't defined by devastation. It's about what comes next. From the whirlwind of destruction comes a whirlwind of activity.
Watch the unforgettable story of two towns coming together to overcome the wreckage.
We Always Have Your Back
