Photo detail

A YOUNG couple walks south on Mill Creek, north of the Sixth Street bridge. The area was once a trailer park that was destroyed during a major flood in 1996. Fires this summer burned large areas of the creek's drainage at a higher elevation, making the ground subject to oversaturation. City and county officials are warning residents about the potential risk of flooding along the creek.
