Severe Weather

RAGBRAI has a history of severe weather. Not very often, but sometimes.

With that in mind Charles City is preparing … just in case.

CHARLES CITY — The Charles City RAGBRAI Public Safety Committee is trying to secure severe weather shelter sites for the event.

Due to the large number of visitors expected on July 28-29, the committee is asking local business to volunteer space that can be used for shelter in case of severe weather.

The shelters will be opened if a tornado, thunderstorm or flood watch or warning is issued for the area.

Business owners who are willing to have their building serve as a shelter site should e-mail Bridget Moe, Floyd County Emergency Management director, at

Let’s hope we don’t need them.
