Anyone Flooded?

Just wondering since it seems the biggest news story is the flooding in the Midwest. I live in the northern suburbs of Chicago and there are towns nearby that are under water. Friends of mine that go to school in Iowa are practically on their own island.

If anyone is in those areas, pics of the flooding would be interesting to see....as well as how your M3 is holding up to the water.

Re: Anyone Flooded?

Yup, my family lives in Wisconsin Dells, and I have a place up in Stevens Point, WI. Flooding in the dells was so bad that the Wisconsin River cut its way around the Lake Delton dam. Cut a huge section out of a county highway, completely carried off a few houses, and drained the lake in a matter of hours. Worst part is that, because of the douchebag village council not accepting FEMA's new flood maps, the people who lost everything couldn't even buy flood insurance.

They had to take the Wisconsin Ducks out to rescue stranded people in a neighboring town too. Pretty much that whole area is flooded.

And up here in SP, they were worried about a couple dams breaking, which would mean even more flooding further south (all these dams are on the Wisconsin River). Just messed up all over. I just hope we don't get any more for about a month so they can start fixing stuff.

Re: Anyone Flooded?
