Flood in Bridgeton

Posted By on June 24, 2010

flood-2010-web1This is the biggest flood we have had since the dam was finished.  Lots of logs caught on the dam.  The undertow is cool and scary.  Logs fall over the waterfall and get caught by the undertow where the water hits the bottom.  They spin and spin and sometimes flip end over end.  Eventually they get away from the dam.  Some of the logs actually get broken into smaller pieces before escaping.  The reservoir is way over summer pool and as soon as the Wabash River gets back to normal they will start dumping it.  I’m afraid it will be sometime before I can clear the dam.
