Spring Melt: Ice Going Over the Dam

Here are three video segments showing large pieces of ice and branches floating downstream this afternoon above the dam. Part 1 watches a big collection of break-up coming downstream from the south, under the Fifth Street bridge.

Here's part 2, showing the debris heading toward the dam. You can (somewhat) see big chunks of ice and branches tipping up as they get to the edge.

This is part 3 - debris going over the dam. You can hear the roar of the water, and can imagine how quickly a person would drown with this ferocious amount of water pounding down.
