Fort Yargo State Park: Tropical Storm Ida - Lake Level

When tropical storm Ida passed by last week, she left a lot of rain behind her. It rained during the day and evening on Tuesday. We had 5 inches at our place. Last time we had a lot of rain, I only saw the aftermath at the Marburg Creek Reservoir in Fort Yargo State Park. This time I wanted to see the lake level near its peak. We drove up to the lake on Wednesday afternoon.

The lake level on Wednesday, November 11th. The overflow tower is completely underwater. Only the latter and vent are above water.

Today – Friday, November 13th – the lake level has fallen by about a foot.
