Five Feet High and Rising

Warsaw, Poland

How high's the water, mama?
Two feet high and risin'
How high's the water, papa?
Two feet high and risin'

Actually, on Friday at 12:30 the water level in Wisla river in Warsaw is almost 7,6m (24,9 feet) and still rising.The max hight of the river dykes is 8,5m but they are weak in several places and may leak and not hold the water.

This shot really shows how high the water is. Hope that you and your family are safe and not affected by this catastrophe.

I hope the water recedes soon and the dykes hold together.

This is scary, Jola. I will pray all holds together. The song is fitting for the image.
