2011 Flood

A couple of weeks ago we had heavy rains for about 12 hours. Galena received 20" of rain in this amount of time. The Stillman Inn faired well with just a bit of water in the restaurant and in the cellar. No complaints here.

Some downtown restaurants were flooded with up to 6' of water in their kitchens. Guests parked in the lower level of the parking lot at the Desoto Hotel found their cars covered in water. The water did not come from the river. It was all run off water that caused the damage.

The flood gates were closed to downtown and as you can see a couple of the houses entering Main street ended up with water filled garages. It was quite exiciting for about a day. The waters receeded quickly.

East Dubuque was hit the hardest.  You can drive around and see the repaired roads that were washed out and railroad tracks.  What a mess!
