Flooding cancels boat show in Iowa

Mississippi River flooding washed out a boat show in Muscatine, Iowa, that was scheduled for May 13-14.

Organizer Dave Moritz told the Quad-City Times that he decided not to hold the fifth annual event because the city's Riverside Park is still underwater, with sediment covering much of the green space and river levels coming down slowly.

Instead, he said the boat show will become a biennial event and will return to the Muscatine riverfront in 2013.
