Tags: Deerfield river dam #4, Irene, NY flooding
It’s everywhere. Continuing rains have pushed river levels to what would be astonishing heights if we hadn’t just lived through Irene.
The Deerfield flows over Deerfield #4 dam on the line between Charlemont and Buckland:
That’s about 10,000 CFS, a flow rate topping most recent Spring flood levels.
We’re expecting a couple of days of generally fair weather, which should allow some of the current ground water to make its exit before the next Rain Event brings the level back up.
Meanwhile, New York is flooding again, perhaps to an extent not seen even during the devastation of Irene.
Positive thoughts are entirely appropriate.
