I boated past there many time growing up. It's part of the fond memories I have of the area. People who didn't live on The River would always say how tragic it must have been to be flooded in. We River Rats knew it was just part of winter on The River. The bigger floods were always bad. That intersection, however, flooded at least once a year when I was a kid and there would always be a picture in the news with the caption saying something to the effect that flood victims were fleeing. A lot of the time, though, it was people like my family boating to the bridge so we could get groceries. Then we'd boat back and drive home.
