MASON CITY, Iowa - Mohawk Square in Mason City will be closed until further notice.

The structure, which houses many businesses, sustained damage to its roof after heavy rainfall over the weekend. That includes the Cerro Gordo Department of Public Health, DHS, the Mason City Housing Authority and Legal Aid to name a few. Now people are wondering where to go and who to contact for important services. Each agency has its own plan of action and we're finding some are easier to reach than others.
For the Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health, the goal is to be operational, at a temporary location within 24 hours.

"We have a team out there that's looking for an alternative location for us, something that would work with our clinics things like that that we can just set up for right now to be able to provide those services," says Kara Ruge, Public Information Officer with the Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health.

But the first priority was saving their costly vaccines.

"We were able to work with the fire department to get one person up there we were able to get the vaccines, follow the proper process in removing those vaccines and were able to get them to Mercy to be stored safely," she says.

Despite the chaos it caused, Kara Ruge and her team at public health are happy everyone is okay.

"This could have gone a lot differently had it happened during the week," says Ruge.
