July 8th flood aftermath

At the end of Raymore Park is a hill that takes the path over a small tributary of the Humber. The tributary passes through a culvert under Scarlett Road. Quite a bit of shale was moved by the force of water and this was projected through the culvert and has created a dam.

After the huge volume of water and silt projected onto the creek bed, the creek is dammed forming a large and quite deep pool.

July 2013, the creek is blocked with silt.
