Ball Field Under Water

The perspective does not begin to show the scope of the flooding. Real life, large expanses seem strangely seem small in a photograph.
The Missouri River is in the center of the frame. At the top third is massive, field flooding stemming from a breeched levee. Just 3 days ago, the lower part of the image (the baseball field) looked like this
Now that it is here, the flooding has happened very fast. From the gallery
