Flood? And the J-box is accessible via magnet on a crane and a pump over a few days.

Let me guess the pump, and crane are electric, and fed from this service thats down due to the flood?

Is there are a sign that says, "Welcome to Lake Scrap Iron"

e57 — a most perceptive remark.

"...accessible via magnet on a crane..."

Actually,the water is not much more than 2" deep,(its all concrete)the service is quite live,and the truck bed full of iron was pushed into the j-box w/a loader.

The photo does not show it but there are HV lines above the area where the building housing the switchboard is, the crane is a little ways down from that area.

P.S. One must have pity on the PG&E meter readers,having to navigate the water and scrap metals.
