Riverside commuters might want to set aside some extra time for tomorrow's evening comute

A.M. UPDATE: The river actually dropped overnight, but as of 5:45 a.m., was rising again and was back to 11.5 feet.

USGS data shows the Muddy River rapidly climbing the height ladder today. If it gets to 15 feet, the MBTA will haul out the large wooden boards and the sandbags and blockade the tunnel the Riverside Line uses to get into and out of Kenmore station.

Time to break out the Swrrly's ark or the sandbags or, say it ain't so - the red duckboat!

Latest observation on NOAA was almost 3 hours ago and the slope was EXTREMELY positive with no sign of slowing.

MBTA doesn't have anything on shutting down Riverside (15' was the last Action Stage for them)...

Anyone know what's going on with the D Line?

Lots of buses lined up in front of Landmark Center, plus several #mbta service vehicles. All ready for a D Line shutdown...

Gage readings going back three weeks, compared to rainfall (scroll down). This time doesn't look as scary... he said naively.
