A park gazebo slowly disappears.
This isn't a flood like the wall of water that usually comes to mind. This is an agonizingly slow seepage of the Missouri River and all it's confluences. We just keep watching the width expand and swallow up anything in it's path, blurring and marring the landscape. The speed of the river is estimated to be twice it's normal flow, uprooting whole trees and disconnecting docks, making its normally dangerous current even more treacherous.
Over-pass supports being swallowed by the Floyd River as it converges with the Missouri River.
The river gives new meaning to 'water slide' at a local park.
Up river, in South Dakota, two of the six dams have reached their all-time release record of 150,000 cubic feet per second (approx. 1,112,000 US liquid gallons per second). This peaked outpouring of water will continue through mid August. It's any one's guess how long it will be before things get back to '"normal". Here are a few pictures taken from my home town, situated on the tri-state area of Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota.
