Recovering From A Flash Flood

 

Flooding

On the evening of June 27th we had VERY heavy rain which resulted in a flash flood overnight.  Our creek overflowed the bank and much of the river bottom land.  This is the highest I have ever seen this water and it wasn’t just standing water, it was flowing.  This picture was taken the next morning when the water had already dropped by over a foot.  The chicken coop probably had at least a foot of water flowing through it, good thing they had roosts.

 

The video below shows the flooding in this area

And this video show the damage to the little garden and the chicken run

    I just noticed your post on TSP. I live in NE Indiana. How far are you from Fort Wayne?

    • Sorry I just noticed your reply. I’m about 140 miles form Fort Wayne or 50 miles north of Toledo.
