With a roar and a whoosh

The water levels began rising overnight on the Maas, becoming a roar beneath the Stone Bridge by sunrise this morning.  It is sluicing through the arches, backwashing beyond the bridge, washing lots of mud and debris up from the south.

Rapid snowmelt in the Ardennes is blamed, and it should crest tomorrow without causing any damage.  Still, it’s been a good show today (especially as a tanker got crossways in the current and started sliding towards the bridge).
