A shot of the Mississippi shore in Sunset Park. Summer like heat and very little rain adds up to low river levels.
We've had a string of temps in the upper 80's and 90's with very little rain and the conditions north of here are even worse.
The river is expected to drop under 5' this week. It normally runs at 8'. The record low is just under 3'. This same month in 2008 it was 21.5'!! Picture it as high as being between the first and second story of the platform!
It's a crazy river. Send rain please.
