Cottonwood Creek apparently overflowed its banks early Tuesday morning in the top photo where it goes into the culvert under Lewiston St. Above and left you can see where the Fire Dept. put out sandbags to try and keep downtown businesses from flooding. According to Gary Riener they were out about 3:30 a.m. putting out sandbags but that the overflow never quite got above the curbs. He said if the downpour that hit around 1:30 a.m. had continued they would have had a lot of flooding. The middle  photo is Main Street with the bottom photo being Fred’s Body Shop. We hope to have some photos taken by Cottonwood Police Chief Terry Cochran in our next update. Click on each photo for a larger view.
