Flood Pics!!
« on: Nov 10, 2006, 03:16:04 PM »
I finally got around to getting them loaded up so here are some pics of the flood.  I didn't have alot of time to get pics, I was on my way to work!

This is the Kilchis logging bridge, water was about 4' below at this time, but it was within 1' of the bridge!

This was along HWY 101 below my house, it was within a foot of the hwy in this picture, but when I went home the night before it was at the white line!

This is the Wilson River at the d**e, I'm looking eye level at the water, and it was higher than this!

It takes alot of water and force to just push these 2000# bales around!  They were all over the place!

I was told the water was at the bottom of the RR bridge!

This was looking down toward the center of town! 


The Governor of Oregon, Kulingowski declared our county and surrounding counties a state of emergency, and then proceded to say on live TV that this is what we get for living here!  What an  :moon:  He said that because we live near the rivers, sloughs, bay and the ocean, we deserve what we get!  Well 85% of us live on higher ground, and it affects us.  Basically the whole town shut down for two days!  I had to still work, had to process the milk or we would have lost millions in product!  Unofficially, NOAA has a weather station 20 miles up the Wilson River and it measured 26 inches of rain in 4 days!  13 of that in one day!!  That's a record for anybody! 

The Wilson reaches flood stage at 12' the measurement of this flood, was a 22.5', the flood of '96 was only 19' and that was supposed to be 100 year flood records!

Yea tell me about we've been getting this too, it's still pouring right now. It's kinda fun to charge the huge puddles in the parking lots though.

What really sucks is my POS truck (cough, nissan, cough) is dead and I'm not putting another penny into the POS!  And I'm forced to drive my mother-in-law's subaru wagon, the one with grass growing out of the passenger door jamb!  I miss blasting around in the mud from the high water!

the worst part of town had over six feet of water.  There are alot of cars that had to be left in order to get out safely, that have dents in the roofs of them, because of the boat motors hitting them!
