Rollin’ On The River

Prairie Creek at Ava City Park rolled across the grounds, with water overflowing the bridge walking path.

Non-stop rain showers paired with occasional torrential downpours hovered over Ava and surrounding areas last week leaving behind an abundance of water.  Creeks and streams quickly overflowed, and yards, country roads, and residential areas flooded as the ground was saturated.  Local folks report over 7-inches in rain gauges.     Photos by Teresa Tost and Herald staff

The Cowskin low water bridge on County Road 514, behind Denney Cemetery on K Highway, had high water and debris.
