Drink the water, go to restaurants...
Breaking News
MASON CITY --- The water is once again safe to drink in Mason City. City Administrator Brent Trout says the tests on the city’s water system conducted Thursday by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources all came back good. He says all the tests came back with a green light, meaning people can drink the water and use it for washing dishes once again. Trout says the clearance to allow people to drink the water once again is the next step in trying to get things back to normal for the city’s water distribution plant. Trout says there’s no longer a need to ask people to greatly reduce the amount of water they are using. The city was left without water after Sunday’s flooding of the Winnebago River impacted the city’s water treatment plant.


=== Now that the water’s been cleared for Mason City to use again, restaurants scrambled to open their doors once again after being shuttered since the water supply was cut off. Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health director Ron Osterholm says five county health specialists were already out this morning clearing the way for restaurants to safely prepare food once again. He says restaurants were provided a list of requirements to fulfill, things that will take about an hour to do before re-opening. Osterholm says restaurants didn’t have to wait for health inspectors to show up before opening their doors, but an inspector would visit them to make sure things were running smoothly. Osterholm says if restaurant operators have any questions about opening again, they can call his department at 421-9300.

MASON CITY --- The water will not come back on in Mason City today. City Administrator Brent Trout says while progress has been made at the city's water treatment plant, they want to take all the procautions necessary for public safety in attempting to restore a consumable water supply to the residents of Mason City as soon as possible. Trout says there are concerns about whether or not the water in the city's five million gallon storage tanks was compromised, so they are not going to use that water to start charging the system and possibly infuse contaminated water into the system. Trout says such a thing happened in 1993 and caused some water systems to be impacted for long periods of time.


Here is the latest information:

The curfew in Mason City has been cancelled.

Curbside recycling and garbage pick-up in Mason City continues to operate on normal schedules.


Garbage pickup in Mason City: City officials ask residents to place all damaged items in garbage bags no larger than 50 pounds if possible. Other items such as carpet can be left at the curbside. The city will not pick up any hazardous waste. Any household materials such as large items need to be handled with normal pick-up procedures. No stickers will be required for items damaged by water.


Free meals: The Salvation Army is currently serving food at TWO mobile canteen locations:
1. the parking lot at Southport shopping center on South Federal Avenue (in front of the former Hobby Lobby)
2. Trinity Lutheran Church, 213 Pennsylvania Ave, Mason City. This is FREE for anyone in need of a meal. Both are open until 7:00 PM


Free Water: Bottled water is available at the Southport Shopping Center (in front of the former Hobby Lobby). Water is free. Each person may have 3 liters of water.


Damage clean up: as residents clean their homes, keep in mind the following:
• If you have homeowners insurance that covers damage, please call your insurance and make those arrangements.
• If damages are beyond your insurance coverage or you do not have insurance, please consider waiting to clean up and dispose of damaged items until you can have your home assessed for possible FEMA funding. If the City of Mason City receives a Presidential Declaration, federal emergency funding may be available for those in need. If you need a damage assessment for that, call the Joint information Center numbers listed below. Private businesses should follow the same guidelines as homeowners.


Joint Information Center numbers --- 641-494-3544, 641-494-3543, 641-494-3547 ---- 8:00 AM-8:00 PM
Call for non-emegency questions and to also report flood damage



Emergency clean-up kits from the American Red Cross and Salvation Army have run out. More have been ordered. Officials hope to have more today. The kits include the following items: bleach, disinfectant, gloves, a bucket, mop, broom and a squeegee.


Tetanus vaccine: The Cerro Gordo County Dept. of Public Health is waiting for delivery of tetanus vaccine. As soon as that arrives, it will be announced through the media.


Flood clean up information packets (NOT CLEAN UP KITS) to help residents use safe clean-up procedures have been delivered to the following Mason City locations:

•         Both Hy-Vee grocery stores
•         Kramer Hardware

Steckman wins House District 13 primary
Breaking News
11:00 PM, June 3, 2008
by Bob Fisher


MASON CITY --- Sharon Steckman received just under 80-percent of the votes in yesterday’s primary election to take the Democratic nomination for the 13th District in the Iowa House. Steckman received one-thousand-92 votes, almost one-thousand more than Lionel Foster, who finished second with only 177. Tex Newman finished third with 101. Steckman says she was thrilled with the victory. She says the hard work paid off with a number of supporters and contacting over 3-thousand people in the district to get their views on the issues. Steckman taught in the Mason City school district for 27 years and was president of the Mason City Education Association. She says that the state’s education system is headed in the right direction. Steckman says there are several issues that need to be addressed in state government. She says she wants to make sure that the state is fiscally sound, and give more emphasis to healthcare and the environment, as well as listening to the concerns of Mason City residents. Steckman will face current Mason City City Councilman Scott Tornquist, who was unopposed in the Republican primary.

Parkersburg Tornado an EF5
Breaking News
PARKERSBURG --- NWS personnel have rated the Parkersburg-New Hartford-Dunkerton tornado as   EF 5 (correlated to wind speeds up to 205 MPH) on the Enhanced Fujita Scale at the locations of maximum damage.  Additional details on path length, width, etc. will be posted on this webpage Wednesday, May 28.  This is the first EF5 tornado in Iowa since the Jordan tornado of June 13, 1976.


A large and destructive tornado moved across Butler and Black Hawk counties on Sunday May 25th.  The initial touchdown occurred near the Butler and Grundy county line, 2 miles south of Aplington at 4:48 pm CDT and quickly grew in size and intensity as it approached Parkersburg.  The tornado was nearly 3/4s of a mile wide as it moved through the southern end of Parkersburg at 4:59 pm CDT.  Significant structural damage occurred in the town of Parkersburg including 100 to 200 homes destroyed.  The tornado maintained size and intensity as it move towards New Hartford.  At 5:09 pm CDT the storm moved just north of New Hartford once again causing significant structural and tree damage.  The tornado weakened around 3 miles east of New Hartford with lesser damage as it moved east to north of the Waterloo and Cedar Falls area.  Significant straight line winds occurred along and just south of the tornado track with preliminary estimates of 90 to 100 mph.   The tornado then grew in size to near 1.2 miles wide north of Dunkerton causing substantial damage to a farmstead there.   The tornado lifted just before entering Buchanan county.
