From the camera view, it looks like the river is still high. What is current flood stage? It the office/Gift shop still floating?

Bob:

At this link you can always check the height of the river in Evansville. This is the link we used at the LST to track the river stages.

We are over 41 feet right now. That is the highest we have been since the ship has been in Evansville if memory serves. The office/gift shop floats at about 37.5 feet.

As you can see if you look at the LST webcam, the round pilings that secure the dock barge are below the deck of the ship. Normally the top of the pilings tower over the ship by twenty feet or more.

Just looked at the river projections for EVV. CHRIS, you are going to have to shift into overdrive, injury or not!!!

question? Doed the river traffic by-pass the Evansville bend when the water gets high enough?

The barges do not bi-pass the Evansville bend. Even though one might think they could, the water would be to shallow to allow this to happen. They do, however, cut the curve (get out of buoy area) when the river is high.

like 7.2 or 7.5 was on our news. They mentioned a lot of southern Indiana got it worse than here. We have water everywhere & a lot of roads closed. They also showed French Lick all flooded with water up around West Baden Springs. Their new casino might be floating across the fields now.
