5.19- Main Street submerged

Raccoon Creek covers Main Street

Raccoon Creek has risen to cover Main St. and partially cover Hodges St. (which is actually the primary street in "downtown" Oriental) one block over.

The usual routine when strong NEy winds last a day or more...

But don't worry, streets are clear up-stream from Main,
so rush-hour traffic should not be unduly delayed.

See some of my archived pictures of Hodges St. being covered by Raccoon Creek during NEy winds last September here and here.
