The Wissahickon Creek before and after photo comparisons

If you looked at the Wissahickon Creek on Sunday you could see how large it became and how fast the water was rushing. NewsWorks has taken some pre-Irene photos and put them side-by-side with post-Irene shots. 

It’s a visual “aha” moment for anyone trying to picture what a small creek looks after you add six-inches of rain.

Our thanks to Bas Slabbers for putting this together.
