Sunday Program – History of the Rockdale Flood
January 26 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The centennial storm ripped its way across Madison and Warren Counties in Iowa on it way east, leaving dozens dead in it’s wake. When the storm reached Rockdale, a small town nestled in the Catfish Creek Valley, it unleashed it’s full fury. When it was all over, nothing but death and destruction was left in it’s wake. The storm had claimed 39 lives in Rockdale; entire families were killed, children were left orphaned. Kyle Cox will present on this monumental storm in Dubuque’s history. Kyle Cox is a local historian. Free for all ages. EB Lyons Center building and displays will be open also. Sponsored by the Friends of the Mines of Spain
