The Floods of 08 In Ottumwa 4 June 13, 2008

Here a few pictures from today.

Market St. Bridge with one of the last trains to go through Ottumwa for the weekend in the background.

Left over water from last night in the basement of the Outreach Center.

Main St business’s began sand bagging this afternoon. To the left is one of the dump trucks moving dirt to reinforce a levee further north. On the average for the last two days at least one dump truck moves through Main St every minute.

The last of today’s sand bags on Market St. We will resume tomorrow morning.
