If you haven't heard, Regions Bank downtown took a hit in the recent storms. It's bad enough that streets have been closed off to prevent fallinris from killing people. For the curious, someone has posted photos from inside the damaged Regions Bank building on the Hups Hoopty website.

The river is expected to crest this afternoon. UPDATE: Emergency crews are evacuating people from 78th and Keystone area due to the White River flooding. 16 people were rescued by boat from their homes. The attached photo show the level of water in that area. Emergency personnel also evacuated people from the Ravenswood areas.
