Today has been a very wet day for Hershey and the surrounding areas. Flooding was the big theme and the Skyrush construction site was not missed. These photos were taken around 12pm and just before a big downpour that lasted most of the afternoon.
If you look to the bottom of the picture you can see part of the old wall that surrounded the lake before construction began. The temporary dam and much of the construction site is underwater.
The water looks pretty deep.
Many of the construction vehicles have been parked along this hillside to try to escape the water.
This is a perfect example to show why the footers are so high.
Progress is being made on the other side of the creek, but it’s hard to tell how much.
It looks like, at the time that this photo was taken, that this is what the lake was before construction.
That’s all for now.
