James River to reach “moderate flood” level tomorrow

Check out the Westham Gauge on the James River. It’s predicting the river to crest at 15.7 feet — that’s well into “Moderate Flood” stage — by tomorrow. This is a great opportunity to see the river at a level it reaches maybe two or three times a year. It’ll probably be up over Riverside Drive near Pony Pasture and over the trail by the 42nd Street stairs. The Pipeline should be partially submerged as well. Good time to get down to the river and take in its power.
