GALLERY: A look at water levels outside Paducah floodwall

Local 6 Chief Photographer Mike Spissinger brings us images from outside Paducah’s floodwall Tuesday. Recent rains mean rising water levels in the Ohio River.

Crews began installing the flood gates along the floodwall on Sunday.

In one of the pictures taken Tuesday, you can see a line on one of the gates, which shows where the water was when the river rose in 2011.
