Nature's Fury

My yard at about 6am after the water receded.
This creek is normally about 7 feet wide, here and only about 2 feet deep
Taken about 7:30 am from the only spot in the road that wasn't flooded.
My dad.
Some how, I don't think the mail man is coming today.
What you are seeing there, is the street.
We walked the railway tracks for about 2 miles, to survey the neighborhood. The road was completely cut off.
The worst of it. These homes were pushed off their foundations. :( The area there with all the water, is the street..
Another view of the road as the fog set in.
Railway tracks washed out
A stalled train
View from the tracks
There was more than a foot of mud left over after some of the water receded at about 10 am.
A car that eventually made it through after about 3 tries
After the water went down about 10 feet or more.
the bridge that was covered by water in the 5th photo where my dad is coming through the water. This bridge would have survived but, about 5 feet of the road gave way.

2009-05-28 [*~*Happy The Penguin*~*]: that must have been one heck of a rain storm...

2009-05-28 [Lothuriel]: Our entire area was devastated. It was the most rain I've seen in 8 years.

2009-05-28 [*~*Happy The Penguin*~*]: where was this? we had some really bad rain storms this and last winter here in washington...we had some bad floods here then to

2009-06-04 [Lothuriel]: Kentucky

2009-11-03 [Cillamoon]: OMG! This is incredible! You live in a gorgeous area, but damn!!! This was May of this year? WOW!

On a different note, slightly, my dad grew up in Kentucky! A lot of my dad's family lives out there. ^_^

2009-11-03 [Lothuriel]: It flooded in early May and then again two weeks later, and then pretty much small flooding almost every weekend through August. Eastern Kentucky is just like that I guess. We have lots and lots of rain. But, I have never seen it flood like this since I was around 7 or 8 years old. It was incredible.
