Anyone up for some doom porn?
Here in the middle of Hellinois, we are facing floods of epic proportions. In my 36 years on this rock, I've seen the River grow to 27 feet. At 27
feet, it cripples this area bad. The worst it's ever been is 28.8 and that was waaaaay before my time. Well kids, the River is expected to rise past
our worst flooding ever. Supposed to crest at 30 feet this coming Tuesday.
With the recent rainfall, we have been overwhelmed with water. The River is rising fast and it's creating havoc here! Not sure what's going to
happen, but we have ENTIRE cities under water. Places that have never flooded are under water. Thousands of people are now homeless and without
I know the damage of a 27 foot River and it's not pretty. Well, we are going to surpass that. This is not good and will cost Billions in damages.
Keep us fools in your thoughts and prayers, we need it!
Tug boats can't keep up with the current and are crashing into each other. Folks can't move their belongings fast enough to escape this mess. And to
top it all off, we have rain forecasted through all of next week. Not only that, but the temps have dropped big time. It's hard to move your stuff
when it's 40 degrees with a rain/sleet/snow mixture AND it's flooded!
I'll be updating this thread with pics, so stay tuned.
For those that are in the flooded areas, stay safe and keep a cool head.
