Evacuated 2011 - Day 22 - July 13, 2011
Time goes on. The river is supposed to drop to normal flood stage by Sunday, the 17th. Normal flood stage is 1549, right now the river is at 1554 approximately. If it drops that low by this weekend the storm sewers my start draining and that would empty the water out of Eastwood Park. This would allow us the ability to get in and assess damage. Then we will start the task of demolition and reconstructing. The by pass bridge is in need of repair. Not sure if that can start until the water recedes so the west bypass is closed. Broadway and Third street are now open for north - south travel. I rented another storage unit to unload the trailer all my tools are now stored in so the owner can have it back. The tools and saws will be some of the last items to go back into the house.
