    Record Flooding in Pensacola, Fl.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JamesAmerson owns a hair salon in downtown Pensacola and shot these photos the morning of April 30. "My shop was dry, but the water was at both the front and back doors. My neighbor's shops where not as lucky. They are still cleaning out today."
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    It was just crazy. I kept to the central parts of Pensacola trying to check on the shop and friends. I couldn't make a straight shot to anywhere. Streets were rivers and cars that didn't make for very good boats. It was even stranger to see stranded cars left in the middle of roads with no standing waters. Then I realized "OH,,,these cars WERE in flooded areas just a few hours earlier."
    Even after countless hurricanes, never have we seen so much rain in such a short period of time.
