Lyons drains out on Monday 9/16. There are 11MB of images. Be patient.

Some things to notice:

  • south Lyons is mostly drained out
  • the pace of the river in main channels is no longer fierce, the pace in flooding areas is moderate
  • Walt Self Sr Center is OK
  • Planet Bluegrass buildings appear in better condition that originally feared, although the grounds need a lot of fill
  • Apple Valley is partly dried out and some homes in precarious places survived
  • the foot bridge across from Black Bear Inn survived
