Wow! Awesome pictures, knew we had a lot of rain but had no idea of the flooding. Guess I will not be going to Shuckers today....

When will you post again. I think this water has gone down quite a bit since these pics. If they are not current pics, you could be hurting business for some ppl at the Res.

I appreciate you posting these newsworthy photos. Unlike the previous commentor, I realize that the weather has created the problems, not your posting of photos. The public is served well by dissemination of this information.

Please. Get real. If photos on this blog are hampering business then there can't be much business to begin with.

I can tell you the flooding in front of St. Peter's By The Lake
on Spillway Rd. is gone. The lake has returned to it previous levels.

So what about flood status of Harborwalk and Hotel Valencia?

The street sign pointing out Old Fannin/Northshore Pkwy at the intersection of OF/NP and Spillway is missing. Does the PRV handle that?
