Does This Bring Back Memories? Riverview 1968 and 2011 - New Memories to be Made

This was flooding in Riverview in 1968. The corner of Carver Street and Douglass Street. Stormwater runoff had no place to go, and the kids had a blast....

...and then there's flooding in Riverview in 2011, November 16th to be exact. This is Martin Luther King Dr. at Carver Street. Pictures courtesy the Kingsport Times-News

Above, vehicles from the transportation department of the city of Kingsport block Martin Luther King Drive to allow deep water to go down after a day of rain Wednesday. At right, a car raises a splashy bow wave as it plows into standing water on the flooded street.
