This is what First Avenue looked like around midnight on April 3 near Oregon Street. The water was still rising at that time.
It got to the level that police had to block off part of it with barricades. But some drivers still tried to get across anyway.
We were there as an officer pulled one of them over. Some officers even changed from cars to Humvees to do their patrols.
