    I've never seen anything like this where I live. Not really sure how serious it is; it's hard to tell because people are freaking out but I can't tell if it's because it's really a problem or because it hasn't happened in years. Anyway, I didn't think the flooding was as close to home as it was. These snaps were taken just down the road from me.

    ya man, its all over pa and ny. my home town was just evacuated a little while ago due to the chance of a dam giving out. My grandmother lives about 30 feet from the river that is expected to rise up to 6ft over night. that would put it in her livingroom

    Yes, even we get footage of the floods in those parts of the States on our news!
    That makes the fact that our cellar almost flooded on Sunday night harmless (we worked against it all four of us, Andreas with the pump outside in the pouring rain and the kids and I down there, trying to soak up the entering water with each and every towel and later also bed sheets and all we had in the house...). It was only rainwater here ... I would not want a RIVER to enter my house! Oh dear!

    Oh yeah this is crazy! In my backyard it was a shock to look out the window and see a small little river that wasnt there a day ago. My friend that was visiting california even called me becuase it was in the news over there.
