It’s been a week since a tornado destroyed much of Iowa City and left the state in ruins.
As of Thursday, the damage was estimated to cost more than $3 billion.
So, we asked some local residents what they think should happen to the state.
We also asked them to share their thoughts on what can be done to help in the aftermath of this devastating event.
We’ll let you decide for yourself what is most important.
The most common response: Nothing.
The tornado did not cause the damage that destroyed much in Iowa City, so the state is not at a higher risk.
The state’s economic outlook is strong.
The economic impact of the tornado has been mitigated, and the economy will rebound in the next few months.
The destruction of property has also been mitigated.
However, the state has a long way to go to recover from the disaster.
The government should not ask Iowaans to make large donations to help with the costs of rebuilding.
The federal government has already provided $3.5 billion in disaster relief, so it should not be asked to pay for it.
The second most common answer: We’re not at the same level as the tornado, but it’s not a disaster.
There is no need for a state to ask Iowa residents to contribute large sums to help pay for the costs.
The amount needed for recovery and reconstruction is modest compared to the costs incurred during the tornado.
The cost of the state’s recovery is minimal compared to that of tornado-affected areas.
The third most common reply: The tornado was bad.
The damage is not as bad as it was.
The storm was a natural disaster, not caused by human activity.
The loss of life in the tornado was very small compared to what the state was dealing with.
This is not to say that we are not going to be hit by storms in the future.
We have the capacity to deal with them, but there is a risk that we may not have the resources to handle the challenges that come our way.
The more we focus on the recovery, the better we can handle future storms.
The most common reaction to the storm was that we have no choice but to focus on recovery.
The answer to that question is not so simple.
There are ways that the state can make the recovery a more pleasant experience for the state residents.
For instance, we have a number of incentives that the government has designed to encourage people to take advantage of the federal government’s disaster relief program.
In addition to the disaster relief funding, the federal Disaster Relief Employment and Training Act also provides grants and loans to companies and individuals that hire people during natural disasters.
In some instances, these incentives have helped Iowa recover, including during the 2010 tornadoes.
However, there are also incentives that state government has set up to help Iowaans recover during severe weather.
In this way, we are able to offer financial support to people during times of crisis.
For instance, the National Flood Insurance Program and the Disaster Relief Assistance Program have provided emergency flood insurance to some households in Iowa.
These programs are administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The fourth most common opinion: We should help the states that were hardest hit by the tornado by providing help to those that are hardest hit.
The fact that we need help is a good thing.
There needs to be a balance between the federal and state governments.
But it should be done in a way that helps Iowa’s economy, its people, and its people in the immediate aftermath of the disaster in order to minimize the damage to the economy.
The fifth most common argument: We shouldn’t ask people to make donations to pay the costs in the event of a tornado.
If we don’t need to, then people will just give.
The states that have received FEMA assistance and the federal assistance are helping to rebuild, but people are still giving, and we are trying to balance the two needs.
I think we should make a distinction between the need for help and the need to make a contribution.
It’s hard for people to give when they know that they are not getting help.
That is why there is an emphasis on people donating.
The sixth most common question: The government has made a mistake in not paying for the damage from the tornado when it happened.
We don’t have a tornado and it happened in our state, so we should not assume that this is what happened.
The flood insurance that was provided by the federal disaster relief programs was an exception to the rule that states should not contribute to the recovery.
We are making a donation to help rebuild Iowa and we need to ensure that there is enough financial aid to help all who need it.
The other reason that states have been slow to donate to the reconstruction effort is because they are still trying to figure out what the best solution is.
The best solution would be to let states figure out the best way to help, and then make the donation.
