Metropolis, IL Ohio River Flooding today

     I figured I'd show a picture or 2 of the flooding as it stands today at Harrah's Riverboat Casino Metropolis.
    The river continues to rise!  The Ohio has now been revised to crest on Wednesday March 16, 2011 at 7pm at 48 feet.  Again for historical significance the 1937 flood hit 60.60 feet. Normal river pool is about 15 feet. So  the ohio which is approximately 1 mile wide here at Metropolis, IL at normal pool is carrying an extra 33 feet of water and right now is flowing about 800,000 cubic feet per second of water by here, which is an unfathomable number.
  These pictures show the employee ramp which currently is about 5 feet deep in the water back filled with gravel and a wooden gang plank connected the 2 dry sides. The other 2 pictures show the Ferry Street valet parking entrance to the casino is now underwater and blocked off to traffic.  The large building in the last 2 pictures is the Hotel.
