Fourth Day of Grand Rapids Flooding Photos - 4/20/13

Watching Mayor Heartwell's press conference today, I learned that Riverside Park was closed to everyone - oops! He had driven by in the morning and saw people walking around it. Yeah, me too :-)
The river is still rising with another foot predicted. The flood walls downtown are holding but sandbags are appearing just in case. Plaza Tower has been evacuated because of a power outage due to water in the basement. JW and Amway are pumping water and fish from their basements. The water is up to the windows in this building - what will another foot do?

Up river the Grand River & the Thornapple are flooding Ada and Lowell and roads are closed. These two photos are from Ada today. Lowell has asked people to stay away...
