Sep 8, 2004, 1 pm: Looking south from the Amboy Road off-ramp on I-240 W, in West Asheville. Southern Waterways, a canoe and raft outfitter, is completely submerged. The company step-van is just visible in front of the building on the right. Of the dozens of rental canoes kept on premises, only one canoe and the kayak attached to a two story building remained.
