Flood's aftermath: debris litters shore
The Susquehanna River flooding has subsided since Friday, but the raging waters washed tons of mud and debris into the Chesapeake Bay.
Pictured here is a stretch of shoreline on the Magothy River in northern Anne Arundel County. The debris washes up on shore, much of it. But the mud settles on the bottom as it drifts down.
Here's a link to a satellite image of the bay, where you can see the Susquehanna quite clearly and the caramel-colored plume its created in the upper bay. (It's a huge image, so scroll right and down to find the river and the bay.)
