The Potomac River at 10 ft on 5/13/2008

The Potomac River crested about 2PM EDT at a little over 10ft as measured on the Little Falls gauge. Here are a few pix that show the river flow from Great Falls to the Chutes section where Difficult Run joins the river. The river height was probably closer to 50 ft at Great Falls where the channel space is narrower than at the gauge near Little Falls.
