We may be in danger

We're monitoring the situation closely here at the office. Our office is around 1 foot above the 500 year flood mark, which in all normal or even aggressive estimates is not at risk of flooding. However, the situation seems to be defying any reasonable estimates.

They are building a berm back behind our offices in attempt to keep the Clear Creek within its banks.

The water would need to come up somewhere between 6 - 10 feet to reach our building, but I heard from the building owner today that the forecast was for water to come within one foot of the building floor by Tuesday. I just can't imagine that happening.

We have everything in place in case the unthinkable would happen, but we really hope that we don't have to go there.

Is this a 1000 year flood?
