I'm watching this closely because my dad grew up there, my aunt still lives there and I'm recognizing some of the photos as close to her home. Hope everyone's safe and good luck when it all recedes....

I have a cache in Kitchi Gammi. I'm curious as to whether that area was affected.

My cousin had her basement windows broken by the force and water flowed into their basement on 43rd. Here is a link to some decent photos, showing some of the devastation

My aunt and uncle live on 47th and Dodge, with a small creek running through their backyard. Though they've been flooded outside, apparently good waterproofing had kept the inside water to a very small amount.

The pictures and videos I'm seeing are incredible. We've been through this down here in the Mississippi Valley too many times in recent years and our hearts go out to all there.
