June 11 - Afternoon
This photo was taken in front of the school (school is on the right) just minutes after the Roseau river dike broke.
The entire area was full of water within a half-hour.  A police car is at the end of the street blocking traffic from crossing the bridge.

Home sweet home.  If you compare the steps to the first photo, you can see the water has receded a few inches.
