The flooding is insane down there, and Danville probably got off the easiest in the area because the river is usually so shallow in this area. The lower parts of town have been evacuated, and almost all the roads are closed. When we went down, the bridge over the river was still open, but the National Guard were warning people that they had one more foot to go before they shut it down. This is the only bridge open to get across the river for miles and miles.
Mahoning Creek, where my pictures of the dogs playing are always from (in knee deep on me water in the deep pools), has flooded its banks and is leaking through the levee system they put in place yesterday. The intersection of Rte 11 and Rte 54 is under water. Very eerie, and very surreal.
Here are some pictures from town:
