Flooding in Crozet – 16 April 2011

Big thanks to the Crozet Gazette and Roscoe Shaw for this video showing the flooding in Crozet today.

Journalism by the people rocks.

These are some pics I took at the 250/240 intersection this afternoon.

  1. We had a neighbor knock on our door a bit after one of the heavier rains had eased up. He told us to take a look at the road way, Saddle Hollow Road above Mint Springs Park and see the damage. It too looked like a raging river running down the mountain side. Cars have since been able to pass, but I suspect they are all 4 wheel drives. I tried contacting VDOT but gave up in frustration after holding for quite a long time. Will try calling again tomorrow. Don’t want them to forget us mountain folk.

  2. i was reminded of the 100 year flood at sugar hollow a few years back. was it 9 inches in two hours?

Something to say?
