Near us the river is very high with trees and debris floating down the river. There was even a jetty that tore away from it's anchor and floated past us. We managed to get lots of food and water and have filled the laundry room sink with water just in case. Most businesses in the area are closed with a few grocery stores, convenience stores and restaurants remaining open. The streets are eerily quiet with a few cars and people walking around. The grocery stores we visited have run out of, or low on, some items such as fruits, vegetables, bread, milk, eggs, and perishable items.
We were able to help one small business unload some sand bags to protect their cafe in case the water rose higher. We wish there was a way to volunteer to help on a regular basis.
