The Great Georgetown Flood of 2011

Yesterday, the Georgetown Harbour waterfront suffered a catastrophic flood. The flooding was a result of a 10 foot rise in the river level caused by last weekend’s rains, which made its way down toward the Chesapeake. Ordinarily this amount of flooding would cause the Washington Harbour to raise its flood walls. Yesterday, however, the walls were not up and by 10:00 in the morning, restaurants by the fountain began to get flooded.

As far as GM knows, only Commander Salamander is actually going out of business. Although last year Hardwear actually went out of business after throwing a going out of business sale, so who knows.
