Carrie Gaulbert Cox Walking Park In Louisville is Under Water

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Louisville East (502) 664-7827

The Ohio River in Louisville overflowed it banks. Check out this photo. The Carrie Gaulbert Cox Walking Park is an oasis just east of downtown Louisville, but is now literally under water.

Once the water recedes the clean up will begin. In the meantime, the park provides images of a different kind.

The park is situated between River Road and the Ohio River.

All the work that is going to be done to recover is going to be something

Hi Dave,

It looks like that here in Southeastern PA too!  Too much rain.

Stan - Yup, that isn't clean rainwater, it's gunky river water.

Lisa - weather is "happening" everywhere.

Hi Dave, Always a good report, regretfully while the report was good, the news certainly wasn't. I expect with the type of winter in the Midwest, some eastern and southern states, we will be hearing much more about the rivers and dyke's flooding communities throughout many areas. This has been one of the toughest times for all of you and you certainly have our empathy.

Dave, for a minute, I thought my back yard was going in this direction.  That looks really deep.

We have been releasing water from the Folsom Dam into the American River and also releasing water from the Sacramento River to overflow into Yolo Bypass so we can make room for all of our rain. This means flooding in some areas. Can't help it.

Dave:  That's an example of "underwater real estate".

Great shot and great localism blog.

Dave--I grew up near the Allegheny River in western PA that flooded almost every year until major work was done to control flooding.

I like Tom's comment 'underwater real estate'; use it to promote short sales.
