If the crest reaches 27 feet, this is the predicted impact on Vincennes: 27 feet - Water is very close to the top of the levee on the Illinois side. Evacuations are necessary in Old Terre Haute area. Sawmill floods. Kelso Creek fills with backwater. Levees are patrolled. Water at critical stage for Niblack levee.
This is the road we normally drive to get to Ouabache Trails Park where we most often walk the dogs. There will be no traversing this road for awhile.
We had to take the high road to get to the park this morning. Even when we arrived our walk was shortened by about a mile because we couldn't walk through this water. This year this has been a familiar sight. The poor farmers that work the fields along the Wabash river will, or I should say have, lost their crops for this year I would imagine. I think it is even too late for soybeans now. A sad situation for many. This is one of those times I count our blessing of being on high ground. I hope all of you blogger people are high and dry.
