Susquehanna River Flood, September 8, 2011

I haven't made a new post in several months.  I would like to be more diligent about posting things in a timely manner.  Anyway, here are some pictures I took of the recent flooding on the Susquehanna River.  Milton did not get hit nearly as hard as several other communities on the river.  Milton is on the West Branch of the river.  The towns on the North Branch and where the West and North Branches converge were affected much more than we were here.  

Buildings on Front Street, Milton  

Bathhouse on Milton State Park Island

You can see the water receding.
Road, parking area, and picnic area under water.
The river level is almost up to the bridge.
I'll try and update this blog more frequently.
