Trenton Avenue Basin - Flooded
View to the northwest from the approximate location of the Frenchtown Cemetary.
Note the brown water, covering nearly all of the ground south of Bridge Street.
This is a combination of overflow from the Nishishackwick Creek, plus inflow from the Delaware River which came in beneath the River Road bridge, seen in photos elswhere on this web site.

The Nishisackawick Creek bridge is just below the bright reflection.
Frenchtown Bridge at High Water Crest
View of Frenchtown side of the Frenchtown-Uhlerstown Bridge
view from west to east.
Note brown flood water at it's highest point almost reaching Bridge Street.
Note also debris building up on the bridge pylon.
Van's Self-Storage Lot, north of town.
Van's Self Strorage Lot, north of town.
Note dry, built-up area in lower center of photo.
This higher area was created with rock fill as a result of recent floods and appears to have stayed dry.
most storage is in trailers which are on wheels and contents may have been protected by their natual height above the ground.
Many stored vehicles parked in lower areas, however, may have been covered by water.
note: We have much larger originals of these with very fine detail and 2-3,000 pixel wide images. We will post links to those photos later today.
