Flash Flooding at First Creek

I just went out and took some photos of flooded First Creek in Old North Knoxville after work. I didn't see any flooded houses or cars, but the water is rising as the creek swells, which means there will be flooded homes soon. As you look at these photos, take note that the creek is usually no more than 10 feet across (that's my estimation, at least), and in most of these photos, there isn't supposed to be a creek.

These people can't move their car because it doesn't work. Their basement (to the left and out of sight) is flooded.

This is where the Greenway makes a bizarre loop near Fourth and Grainger. There shouldn't be any water in this photo.

This path usually leads to a foot bridge at Luttrell and Grainger
