June 17: David Eberle separates, sorts and lays water-soaked photos out to dry on the lawn of his home in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. "All you can do is save what you can, and keep the memories you have," said Eberle. In Cedar Rapids, where 24,000 people were evacuated when floodwater submerged about 1,300 city blocks, more people were being allowed to return to their homes Tuesday.
