1st shots of Flooding in Vinton 06/10/08

These photos were taken in Vinton, IA today between 930 and 1100 am.

After seeing this, everyone's worst fears started becoming a grim reality. By 1100 am, the water started to fill in more and more empty spaces.

My heart and prayers go out to everyone affected, and everyone who is helping!
