Floodwaters damage property, infrastructure in Story and Boone counties

Date:


Gilbert resident Chris Pellack began to take stock Wednesday morning of damage from floodwaters — one of many central Iowans surveying their property after heavy rains overnight inundated areas of Story and Boone counties.

Pellack lives in the 100 block of Matthews Drive in Gilbert and runs Pelican Woodcraft out of his garage. 

Pellack said he quit his previous job as a bus driver in December to start his business, which crafts cutting and charcuterie boards, desks, tables, bookcases and other custom items.

“It was a hobby that I learned I was actually pretty good at,” and he said he had just bought a table saw for about $5,000 on Tuesday. 

Then the rains came — 2 to 5 inches overnight in parts of Boone, Hamilton, Hardin, Marshall and Story counties, with WHO-TV reporting that more than 3 inches fell in Gilbert.
