Pictures from the latest Manitou flood

Posted By on Fri, Aug 9, 2013 at 9:42 PM

Having seen an ambulance tear off with an injured woman, multiple cars flipped near the Cliff House, and refrigerators mixed in with logs and debris near the Briarhurst Manor Estate, Indy reporter J. Adrian Stanley affirms that Friday's flood off the Waldo Canyon burn scar is "much worse" than any to date this summer.

As of about 9:30 p.m., reports are that at least three people have been injured. KOAA is reporting that Canon Avenue evacuees won't be allowed to return home until tomorrow; there is a shelter set up at the Historic Manitou Congregational Church, 103 Pawnee Ave. 

Below are some photos Adrian took while walking through town both during and after the storm. One thing not pictured, but that she reports, is that some properties damaged in the July 1 flood were further harmed today. In fact, in some cases, the Dumpsters that were on-site as part of their cleanup efforts were toppled and sent into the homes themselves.
