The River Floods

July 2, 2013 - a 2-year River flood on Big Reed Island Creek in Dugspur, Virginia. 

Elmer, a resident on the river says the locals measure it at about 6ft of extra water. 

The night on June 2, 2013 the river was here and fast moving -

The next morning the flood waters had receded significantly -

eight foot floods tend to happen every 5 years. 12 foot floods are every ten - the last was 12 years ago.
