Chain Bridge, before flood and during
09-JUN-2013

Chain Bridge, before flood and during

We went to a different area today, and things looked even worse than yesterday. I have some work I need to do before looking at pictures but thought this comparison was quite striking.

Check out the water level at the pier and under the span compared to this capture from a year ago:

Nikon D800 ,Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED
1/200s f/11.0 at 40.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Thanks for showing the before and after. That is a hell of a lot of additional water! Nicely documented. ~V~

I can see why they are not letting boats under there! Great comparison shot. We have been reading about the flooding over there. Stay safe! V

Quite an impressive comparison. Looking at the size of people that is at least 6 or 8 meters above normal level!. V

Always impressive to see how much the water level changes so quickly. It looks like a mini Brooklyn Bridge...

Comparing the two pictures you get an idea of the difficult situation.V.

what an inundation...it may soon be dangerous to cross as the piers could well be undermined by the strong flow of the river...
