February Flood 2018 in Hastings and Barry County. 

This flood is being compared to the flood of 2013. 

February Flood – Barry County 2018

The Thornapple River continues to go down after Friday mornings’  9.7 foot crest. At 4:46 pm Monday (2-26) afternoon the river is 7.2 feet.

We took a drive around Barry County visiting Tyden Park in Hastings, the Riverwalk Park in Hastings, part of the Thornapple River toward Nashville,

McKeown Bridge Park, the Irving Dam, and the Middleville Dam.

The river was high and moving very fast.  The air was cold and the water colder.  The Irving Dam did breech in the early morning Saturday.
