Pedaling through flood waters

Ray Clover, of Carbondale, rides his bike Saturday through the flash flooding that covered East Walnut Street. The flood shut down several streets in Carbondale until the fire department alleviated the drain system and towing services cleared strewn cars. Tiffany Blanchette | Daily Egyptian

Derrick Burns, a sophomore from Chicago studying criminal justice, rides his bike Saturday in front of Brush Towers during the flash flood.  Students were asked by law enforcement to get out of the water because of hazardous conditions.  Burns said he was on his way to visit his girlfriend. “Now that I’m soaking wet, love will just have to wait,” he said. – Nicole Hester | Daily Egyptian
