Wapsipinicon Flood

The News is calling this a 500 year flood.  Here is a couple of photos of the Wapsi as it runs through Anamosa. Here is a picture of what the dam usually looks like.  Notice the big building in the back ground. In the flood picture you will see the doors of the building actually wide open if efforts of letting the water just run right through it….  However, right below this building the town’s water plant, so we will see if we loose water usage before this is all over.  The last picture shows you a picture of the bridge on the highway, which is now closed due to sand bagging efforts.  Ill post more photos tomorrow if we can get down to the river, right now they have restricted access.
