Residents who frequent the Boy Scout Camp Landing on the St. Mary’s River will get a good idea what a moderate flood stage looks like in the photo above, taken on Tuesday afternoon when the river rose to the 15-foot level. The rains returned to Baker County later that evening, when the west and northwest quadrants were predicted for another four inches added to the 10-15 inches that fell the last seven days, much of it on Sunday. The measuring station behind the Ag Center in Macclenny was showing less saturation compared to sections of the west, northwest and northeast county (see Facebook postings, page 3). David Richardson, chief of the county’s Emergency Management Office, said the heavy rains have not yet resulted in any major problems, and the sole road washout occurred on Steel Bridge Rd. (below) east of the boat landing. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates the St. Mary’s will begin to recede on Thursday.
