Hurrican Irene aftermath. Sunday morning at aprox. 10:00am


These videos of The Red Clay Creek were filmed on Sunday morning, 8/28/2011, at aprox. 10:00am.

The first was taken from Bridge 155 on Old Capitol Trail.
The second was in Stanton shortly after 10:00am.
The third video was created by the owner of Delaware Equipment Rental on Greenbank Road . It was filmed earlier in the morning. I believe the person filming mentions it is about 7:45am

Again, I have posted many more photos on a seperate page. The link to that page is above labeled Hurricane Irene.

There is one photo of the bridge rail in Marshallton showing evidence of debris where the high water mark appeared to have been.



Above graph shows the Red Clay Creek crest in Stanton, about 8ft above flood stage, at around 8:00am Sunday morning on 8/28/2011.

NICE WORK posting that Mid Atlantic River Forecast chart. I kept trying to find it online and could not. The only thing coming up for me locally was the Brandywine info.

Also interesting to see Pierson's... I see Mike got most of his cars out of there, I wonder about Pierson's shop.

If it works it will give you a list of all the streams in the region and Red Clay is listed.
