As promised, I got a picture from River level inside the levee.
As you can see the river is nearly at eye level where I was standing beneath the bridge on the river side of the levee, just 60 feet from the water's edge.
Now this is what's scary. Right on the edge of the river on this level is a doctor's clinic, the new tourism center which you see in the background of the picture below, the riverwalk, a Comfort Inn, and new construction on a hospital. The parking lot, the road and the construction sight have water bubbling up through the ground.
See the sandbags on the road where the water is puddled.
