From the first hint of storm, The Gazette has shared hundreds of stories, visuals and data, providing a go-to resource that explains the impact of derecho to Eastern Iowa and beyond. These experiences and pieces have led the team to plans for a special year in review and state of recovery scheduled for Sunday, August 8 through Wednesday, August 10, 2021.
