photos - hurricane gustav

Normally the river basin is almost empty. Here it is full and raging. In certain areas this river caused flooding. This section of river is near the Tabarre bridge crossing.

Here is another shot of the river.

This is the Croix des Misisons bridge. The bridge was closed to both pedestrian and vehicle traffic but people still wanted to stand on the bridge to look at the river.

In the distance is the Croix des Missions market area. People are standing in the flooding river water not looking too concerned.

Here is what the river looks on the opposite side of the Croix des Missions bridge.
