    The red line on the bottom photo is the highest recorded flood level back in 1993. This flood is close to hitting that mark as the water has receded some today.

    Edit to anyone who can; I don't know how to rotate the sideways pictures as from the place they were obtained from they were straight.

    Been reading about the flooding. Lots of rain everywhere for a big part of the past year. There's some areas been flooded here too. Not like you're showing though.

    On a separate note, all pix load long way horizontal. The software automatically changes them even if they were right for viewing before.
