The River is rising

The script for the video:
Here's the River yesterday. Notice it's up to the bridge.

This graph shows the River height (on the left)and the Flow, or speed of the water (on the right)
The blue line is actual observations. The green line is the future forecast.
The double lines are readings 30 hours later. They were added to show how more rain increased the river's flooding.

A day later the River is already covering the bridge and the water is moving swiftly.

Let's throw a log into the river and see how quickly the water carries it downstream.

Recall the forecast says the river will continue to rise. The river could get much higher as it did last summer. Not a good time to go kayaking.
