Shoals Daily photographer Robert W. Oliver snapped these pictures at McFarland Park today. A policemen at the park stated that the water had not risen to General John Coffee Highway (State Highway 20) yet but that this is the worst it’s been since 1993. He added that the river was forecaster to rise another 3 feet and more precipitation was on the way.
We encourage people to be mindful of flooded roads over the next few days. It is extremely difficult to determine how deep standing water is so please be safe and remember: turn around, don’t drown!
