PHOTOS: Gunpowder River Rages After Hurricane Sandy

Gunpowder Falls State Park trails, between Perry Hall and Kingsville, appeared flooded on Tuesday.

Darkening skies and drizzling rain didn't keep onlookers from visiting the Gunpowder Falls State Park, between Perry Hall and Kingsville, along Belair Road on Tuesday afternoon.

The main attraction—raging high water and rapids in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

"It's awesome," said Jim McCready, who lives near the park. "The last time I saw it like this was Hurricane Irene, but even then I don't think it was quite that high."

Perry Hall resident Sarah Abaza brought a group of friends, including one visiting from Egypt, to see the water level. "This is her first time in the U.S. They don't have hurricanes in Egypt," Abaza said.

"This is insanity," she added.

Special thanks to Lee Miller, a recent Temple University graduate, who contributed photos and video of the river and debris.
