Major Flooding Possible
« on: March 19, 2012, 10:55:23 AM »
Anyone in the White River Basin needs to watch carefully. The NWS Tulsa office is predicting up to 15 inches of rain in NW Arkansas up to Springfield. The rain has started here in Fayetteville.

Very wet in OKC, but that's a good thing. We need it bad

Rain and wind today here in Springfield, MO. It was "falling" horizontal for a bit.   :-\

Rain just started here in our little corner of SWMO.  It's gonna be a nasty few days.

Lots of rain going on right now in OK.  We've already received several inches and the moisture trail leads all the way back into SW Texas...  Good for them though, they need it really badly.

Some flooding here, I got basement flooding and damage, according to the adjustor, it looks like I'll hitthe max of $5,000 damage I am covered for. Thw hail last week was something awful as well. We received 5-10 minutes of ping pong ball sized hail, in the neighboring city/ municipality they had lemon and baseball sized hail.

It seemed to rain for a good 24 hours here in Little Rock with a rain pattern stretching straight up towards Branson, and the Ozarks. Lotís of localized flooding, and even some wind damage before the storm, but nothing too major.

Lots of rain, but spread out over time and not in a hurry and we didn't sniff some of the totals they were forcasting.  What it did was fill the lake up pretty good with muddy goo and screwed my fishing this weekend up.
