Photos of Harrah's Metropolis Riverboat Casino flooding

      This series of photographs were taken Sunday March 20th 2011.  They show that Harrah's Metropolis Riverboat Casino is still closed from the flooding of the Ohio River here in Metropolis, IL.

Harrah's Metropolis Riverboat Casino's entrance is underwater and the casino will most likely remain closed through this week. Once the water goes down they will have to remove all their sandbagging and repair any possible flooding damage, which if everything went well with the sandbagging effort should be minimal. If I were a betting person I'd say the casino will be back open on the 25th of March. Let me know what you think in the comments.
