Delaware River Flood March 11 2011

BloomsburypBack at the Delaware River at the Riegellsville bridge. Result of the heavy rains from yesterday. 2.73″ fell at my house which is only 10 miles away. More than 4.50″ fell in places further north. This photo was taken when the river was approaching moderate flood category. More photos available in the gallery.
