SHERIFF: ‘Great leadership’ in county after derecho
25 Aug 2020
Despite all the bad the derecho caused, Jasper County Sheriff John Halferty saw some silver linings.
It’s easy, Halferty said at the Tuesday, Aug. 18, county board of supervisors meeting, to criticize what could have been done, even though Iowans were given “little or no warning” about the impending wind gusts. One week later, the sheriff wanted to point out some “good things” that came out of the storm.
