Flooding River I

Flooding River

You probably heard in the news about the Red River flooding near Fargo and Morehead in NW Minnesota.

The Mississippi River, though, has also been flooding, as you can see in this photo I took. I am standing in Indian Mounds Park, in East St. Paul. As you can see from the photo, the airport (which lay across the river from where I am standing) is partially flooded, and would be even more flooded if not for the flood walls (the white structure) erected for the purpose of containing the flood.
