    Re: Aerial view of the flooding of the Missouri

    Expect the water to be this high through August. The water runoff amount this year probably exceeds wqhat we might call the 500 year event.

    It could be worse. Take Denver area, NWS and other figure that the PMF could be a 24 inch storm over 2-3 days. No way could the infrastructure withstand such an amount.

    Additional rains in next two months will make the runoff situation worse.

    Levees have given out by Hamburg, Ia and NW Missouri...20 miles of I-29 closed there as well. Not good.

    "It's the biggest flood in terms of total water in the last 113 years on the Missouri River," said Dave Becker, operations manager for the dam.
    Along the Platte River, the sense of foreboding was just as oppressive. The snowpack in the Rockies was 140 percent of normal, and the problem was exacerbated by heavy rainfall at lower altitudes in the North Platte basin. Parts of Montana received a year's worth of rain in May alone.
    The dams on the Platte River are also full and dump at Plattsmouth , so watch for flooding in that basin. Hamburg is in the wrong spot. It should be up on the bluffs.

    Good find. Those shots really give a great perspective on the problem.
    Fortunately the nuclear power plant had been shut down so at least we aren't faced with a potential melt down situation.

    The cheap nuclear power during the summer air conditioning season will not happen this year. OPPD will be buying power from MidAm. The bill will be reflected next year.

    Two major railroads are having big problems. My bus buddies are out in the field trying to raise tracks couple of feet.

    Slight parking snafu at the CWS. If it rains two inches, watch for nearby flooding.

    Re: Aerial view of the flooding of the Missouri

    Found a good link that really shows why this is going to be such a long flooding event. It shows that nearly every river in Montana and SD are at, or near, flood stage and the mountains still have nearly 100 inches of snowpack in some areas.

    I was in Missouri Valley this past weekend and they were working on raising the tracks across South 6th St. by Papa Joes bar.

    On the nightly news on ABC Diane Sawyer just talked about the efforts to build the levee to protect the small town of Hamburg, Ohio from the Missouri River flooding.
