Riverwalk Riverswim Bridge

The Des Moines river went up nearly 4' in the last 24 hours, and is still climbing. As I write this, a crazy storm is about to move through. A storm that already generated a tornado that ripped through a boy scout camp, killing at least 4, injuring 40+.

This bridge here (An old RR bridge converted to a ped bridge as part of the ongoing Principal Riverwalk project) will be the first downtown bridge to go under. Water is already massaging its underbelly, with a forecasted crest another 3' higher by the weekend. Not accounting for the heavy rain now falling upstream...

Oh, BTW. Here's my full gallery of The Floods of 2008
