That's not good and getting scary.  How far do you live from where that camera is taking the video?

that camera is on 4th street,I live on 14th street,10 blocks..they tore down a bunch more houses yesterday to make room for dikes,some very nice ones,I think they are also thinking the river may not get past 38 feet which is 3 feet down from 97 but we have did a lot to the city since then

That's really not the far from there, but it must be far enough since your house never flooded.  That's good that they don't think it will crest beyond 38 feet this year.  That must have been hard for those people to sell their homes so they can work on the areas that flood.  I guess they were stupid to build them so close to the river in the first places since it has been known to be a flood zone.

It will be great to see that live cam each day to see how it changes.

It should start climbing that dike soon...all the high school kids are sandbagging in neighborhoods today,they have buses picking them up at schools and taking them where needed

I hope that tearing down the houses for the dikes will help in a big way.
