Ohio River Crests today

Here is how high the water is now. Flood stage is 39 feet. Today the water was at 45.6 ft.
If you have ever been on the Paducah riverfront, you know that the concrete things you see along the water's edge are really planters and that 3/4 of the riverfront is underwater. Fortunately is doesn't seem to be getting so high that the flood gates need to be installed. More rain is predicted for the weekend.

On April 26, we will be having a Christian Musical Concert as the final event for our AQS Quilt Show, presented by 200 members of the Crossroads Christian Church, Newburgh, Indiana, and the Nazarene Missionary Baptist Church, Evansville, Indiana, on the Wilson Stage on the riverfront -- it is totally under water now. This is part of the annual music ministry program of these two churches. Bring your lawn chair. Admission is free.
