Flooding

There is pretty intense flooding happening in the area I grew up in this week.
Please pray for everyone affected and for the water to subside.
Thankfully, my parents neighborhood is fine.
Shot of Turner, OR. One of the most affected towns.
I could not find the original source, found on Facebook.
 The Corner Market in Lyons, OR.  My sister and I used to ride our bikes here when we were kids.
