Storm Water up to bottom of Trunk River bridge

We are extremely fortunate that Sandy delivered only a glancing blow to Falmouth and Oyster Pond. Top wind gusts reached about 63 mph. The storm surge was more dramatic. Water from the Sound POURED into Oyster Pond for several hours. The pond level is very high and was still high yesterday afternoon. The Ransom Road dock, at the top of the pond, is under water. It is expected that it will take several days to subside. It looks like the Trunk River bridge was over-topped by the surge.
