IOWA FALLS, Iowa — Sandbagging efforts are taking place in Iowa Falls to keep the city’s clean drinking water safe.

Iowa Falls crews are working to lay out sandbags to keep water out of a lift station.

Ice jams caused the Iowa River in that area to rise more than eight feet in just an hour. Officials say if those ice jams break, the water could rise drastically.

Officials say no homes are threatened at this time.

DES MOINES, Iowa — The Des Moines community is standing together with Muslims after the worst mass murder ever in New Zealand. Authorities say a 28-year-old white supremacist from Australia killed 50 people at two mosques in Christchurch Friday.

Members of the Muslim, Jewish, Christian, and atheist communities came together Sunday to speak against the hate at the First Christian Church in Des Moines.

The Interfaith Alliance of Iowa organized the event.
