READER REPORT: Longfellow Creek bridge flooding in North Delridge

MONDAY MORNING: The photo is from Mary Metz, who reports, “I had to dismount and wade across the little bridge over Longfellow Creek (by the athletic club on Yancy) this morning.” With rain continuing today, our area remains under a Flood Watch alert, which says in part, “Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.” (Let us know if you encounter any other flooded spots – text 206-293-6302 or email – thank you!)

MONDAY AFTERNOON: Here’s how it looked and sounded later – thanks to Melinda for the video:

    Respect to the Longfellow beavers for modulating the flow.

    The creek itself isn’t flooding.  Was just there, at the gym.  Water is coming out of the two adjacent overloaded storm sewer covers.

    “Turn Around. Don’t Drown”Should not have waded through.
