FLOODED: Columbia River Park!

Ice jams, high water levels, and the sheer volume of ice floating down the Susquehanna have caused Columbia River Park to become flooded this morning (1/16/18). The painted scale on one of the piers of the Veterans Memorial Bridge shows the water level at 235 - eight feet above normal.

 Part of the roadway through the park is now impassable.

 Sign down!

 Even the cul-de-sac is flooded.

The leaning lamp post is being menaced by the imposing ice.
