Greater City Providence

Take me to the river

Holy rainstorm!

Providence River at RISD at about 9am:


And a little video:

I’m hearing reports of basement flooding in the area. Too bad it wasn’t snow, it would have been December Debacle 2.0.

Update: The ProJo was out and about earlier than I was and caught the Woonasquatucket outside it’s banks in Waterplace. Check out their video here.

I imagine the river level retail spaces at Waterplace (the condo towers) were flooded this morning.

    MORE trees and green spaces where the water can be absorbed.”
