President Trump is touching down in Iowa Tuesday to discuss the state’s recovery efforts after an intense and rare wind storm called a derecho.

More than a week later, many people are still without power and others have nowhere to go after losing their homes.

Here & Now‘s Robin Young speaks with Kate Payne, Eastern Iowa reporter for Iowa Public Radio, who toured a damaged apartment complex where many immigrants and refugees live that has since been deemed unsafe to live in.

Help people impacted by the derecho through EMBARC, the Catherine McAuley Center or these local organizations.
