    We've got the worst flood in 20+ Years going!!!!! (And I got video)

    I got video too. This is the Wabash River in Tippecanoe County.

    The road toward the end from the overhead view that is submerged is State Highway 43, just North of West Lafayette. As you look across the river, the far tree line is the normal bank. Currently, that Wabash is about a mile and a half across, instead of 150 feet or less. It's at 22.6 feet and that's WAY over flood stage.

    Totally bizarre, eh? This is from the melt off of the big snow we had and the big rain that followed.

    Nasty stuff, Tom.
