If one doesn't know what the problem actually is, how does one really "fix" something?

That would be a good idea.

An eight-minute drive from downtown to the MSC, maybe less due to the lack of traffic during the storm.

The font size in the left column which starts with the city's longitude and latitude is still too small. It's large enough to be readable, but only barely.

The other thing which would be really helpful when a creek is near overflowing is telling people *where* the creek is near overflowing. While it might have been close to overflowing somewhere along its length, near where I live, the concrete ditch that Adobe Creek runs through was only about halfway to full.
