Flood pics

I was up in Grand Rapids yesterday, and got some pics of the high water. I'm sure the city is pretty much off limits today, as the mayor has declared a state of emergency, and the Grand River is supposed to crest today.

The first two are at 6th St., the last three are taken from the Wealthy St. overpass. The water is a few feet below the concrete flood barriers, which are protecting the city. Normally there is probably about 10 ft or more of clearance under the railroad bridge, but yesterday the river was licking the bottom of the bridge. Hopper cars were parked on the bridge to stabilize it as the rushing river puts lots of stress on the bridge.
(This also cuts off rail traffic to most of Lower Michigan)
