It’s a DAM Shame – Part 3 – Dam Safety

This year has been a record-breaking year for many things, especially weather.  The MidWest has been inundated with flooding, wind and Tornado damage.  The farmers have already lost so much of their livestock and may have to watch many more of them die.  They have lost the stored crops and have no hope of a crop for this current growing season.  They have lost their homes, their personal automobiles, their work vehicles, their outbuildings.  They have lost everything.  Please keep them in your prayers.  

Meanwhile, pray for our nation.  There are some very scary times just up ahead.  When there are no jobs and no food…people will become desperate. Desperate people take desperate actions.  Beware and be safe.  

Below are the updates posted over the last 6 months for your review.

The world’s ageing dams are not built for ever more extreme weather


Dams are typically designed to cope with a so-called 1-in-100-year flood event. But as the world warms the odds of extreme rainfall are changing, meaning the risk of failure is far greater. Engineers have been warning for years that many old dams around the world are already unsafe and need upgrading or dismantling.

what happened at the Oroville Dam in California in February 2017. … earthen dams where excess water flows over the top of the dam and down a concrete-lined spillway.

If this concrete is damaged, the water flowing down the spillway can rapidly erode the earth underneath, and there is a risk of the entire dam wall collapsing.

There is a much greater chance of this happening when extreme rainfall or melting of snow leads to very high water flows into already full dams. A 2018 study concluded that climate change exacerbated the high water flows that led to the erosion of the Oroville Dam spillway, where 190,000 people had to evacuate and repairs cost $1.1 billion.

Not all countries have such regular inspection regimes. In the US, it varies widely from state to state. California has a relatively strict regime but astoundingly Alabama doesn’t require inspections of its 2300 dams.

Globally there have been at least 40 dam failures since 2000, resulting in hundreds of deaths. The most recent was the failure of the Tiware dam in India on 2 July after heavy rains, killing at least 19 people. The worst was in 1975, when an estimated 170,000 died after the failure of the Banqiao dam in China.

GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN! THEY ARE CLEARING UNDER THE EMERGENCY SPILLWAY! SNOW MELT IS COMING! DON”T HESITATE- GET OUT NOW! Fire Season is here. no work was done on the Tunnels, no work was done on the Gates, we have underground seepage under the Weir and did you see them finish all the drainage on the Main Spillway? The gravel used around the pipes is the wrong size and will flow into the pipes eventually because they can! We saw them put in the underground drainage pipes for the seepage under the Weir, so now we know the truth! There is seepage under the Weir! Remember the Non-Sinkhole? OKAY……. No work was done on the Power Plant leaking and it is working on only 5 turbines. And the biggest question! Where the hell is all the water going to go after it goes down all those steps????!!! Now we can see two ports, but the water will still travel down the tree covered mountain and clog up the diversion pool with trees and debris. The Green Spot is still there and worse, there is liquefaction next to the Spillway and the Spillway is messed up again, please see my new video for proof. Okay! So, I’m here streaming again. I work full time, so depending on if they have the Cams on or not if we will be able to see. I will try. Time schedule on Cams. My family and friends live in the path of the water if this thing comes down, so that is why I am broadcasting this, for them and you!

The main spillway at the Oroville Dam is cleared of construction related items and is now ready for possible use in the future, though many do not fully trust the spillway’s integrity, nor that of the DWR or Kiewit Construction (and Mining). There is definitely a lot of leaks and other issues with this dam, no doubt about it and not up for discussion on this end, that is why the chat is disabled.

Update 6/2/19

San Francisco Bay drains water from approximately 40 percent of California. Water from the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers, and from the Sierra Nevada mountains, flow into Suisun Bay, which then travels through the Carquinez Strait to meet with the Napa River at the entrance to SanPablo Bay, which connects at its south end to San Francisco Bay.   Wikipedia


The biggest danger zone lies in the Central Valley at the base of the Sierra Nevada, whose tall peaks can wring the skies of huge amounts of rain and snow. The area is essentially one giant floodplain that would be easily transformed into an inland sea without man-made flood control. At 400 miles long and 40 miles wide, it has only a tiny bottleneck from which to drain— a one-mile opening at the Carquinez Strait at San Pablo Bay — before water heads into the San Francisco Bay.  Source


LA Times reports that earlier this month, the 78-year-old Prado Dam was assessed by government officials and engineers. And after taking a look at the aging structure, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers raised the dam’s risk category from “moderate” to “high urgency.” This means that the next “significant flood event” could potentially breach the Prado Dam’s spillway, thereby possibly flooding local Riverside and Orange County communities from Disneyland Resort in Anaheim all the way to Newport Beach. 

The Prado Dam is located adjacent to the 91 Freeway nearby Riverside and Orange counties. For most of the year, the dam holds little to no water. But during significantly rainy seasons or in times of damaging storms, the structure is intended to collect water and prevent flooding along the Santa Ana River, which runs throughout southern California. If nearly-100-year-old structure breaks or is badly damaged in the next big rain storm, the consequences could be dire.

“Our concern right now is about the concrete slab of the spillway and how well it will perform if water were to spill over the top of the dam,” said Lillian Doherty, the Army Corps’ division chief.  Source

Mural being removed from Prado Dam

EMBED <>MORE VIDEOS A patriotic mural is being removed from the Prado Dam as part of a modernization project.

CHINO HILLS, Calif. (KABC) — The 74-year-old Prado Dam in Chino Hills was originally built for flood control to protect San Bernardino County from mountain runoff, and now a $2.3 billion modernization has reconfigured the dam for multiple uses.

“The number on capacity that we have here for the dam is for flood control, that’s our primary mission. So if we did have a flood threat we’ll make sure that we do have sufficient capacity to handle that flood,” said David Van Dorpe with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. “Right now there’s not very much water behind our dam. We’re hoping that we do get a little more rain here in the spring before we go into the dry summer months.”

The drought has not produced much runoff to store water, but once the project is complete the dam will be able to store most of the rainfall and runoff.

In the years past, much of it would flow from the Santa Ana River down to the ocean, engineers said.

But the Prado Dam is best known for its patriotic mural, which was painted in 1976. It can be seen on the 91 Freeway traveling through Corona.

Upon closer inspection, the mural is faded, damaged by weather and defaced with graffiti. Dam engineers said the mural will have to be removed.

“When it was originally painted in 1976, they used lead-based paints. We can’t risk getting that lead-based paints either into our environment, or our water supply, or to the ocean so the mural it does have to come down,” Dorpe said.

A public hearing on the mural will be held at Corona High School on April 9. The removal process will begin at the end of April.



Sep 3, 2022  The goal is to have the mural “completely restored, hopefully, by July 4 of 2023.” Peter Usle, from the Friends of the Prado Dam Mural which is leading fundraising efforts — said five city councils — Corona, Eastvale, Norco, Chino and Chino Hills — signed resolutions “in support of returning the mural to its former glory.” “Not …

Engineers Raise the Flood Risk Level at Southern California Dam

About 1.4 million people and Disneyland are downstream from the dam along the typically dry Santa Ana River

5 Reasons to Consider a Career-Focused MBA Program
Army Corps of Engineers An aerial view shows Prado Dam.


  • Prado Dam is located on the Santa Ana River in the city of Corona in Riverside County southeast of Los Angeles

  • The Santa Ana River bed is typically dry, but water flow can be heavy after winter storms

  • Work on the Prado Dam spillway will begin in 2021

A recent assessment has raised concern about the potential for failure of the spillway of a flood control dam on a Southern California river where 1.4 million people live and work downstream, according to the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers.

The Corps said Thursday it has changed the risk characterization of Prado Dam from moderate urgency to high urgency. Prado Dam is located on the Santa Ana River in the city of Corona in Riverside County southeast of Los Angeles. Disneyland and 29 cities, including Anaheim, Santa Ana, Orange, Costa Mesa and Newport Beach, are all along the river’s path to the ocean.

The 96-mile river usually has little water flow except during winter storms and the dam is typically dry. The Corps’ report cites concerns about the spillway during a major flood.

“The dam, which is typically dry, has historically operated without incident,” according to the Corps. “It has not experienced a large enough storm to cause water to flow over the spillway.”

California Department of Water R

The dam, about 30 miles upstream from the Santa Ana River’s confluence with the Pacific, was built in 1941. An assessment this month indicates potential for poor performance of the spillway during a “significant flood event.” Risk areas include Anaheim,

“Our concern right now is about the concrete slab of the spillway and how well it will perform if water were to spill over the top of the dam,” said Lillian Doherty, the Army Corps’ division chief, according to the Los Angeles Times. “We will determine whether or not it is as reliable as it should be.”

Work on the spillway will begin in 2021.

Doherty said her team with work with experts to determine risk-reduction measures.

“Public safety is our number one priority,” said Col. Aaron Barta, commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District. “The primary objective of the Corps’ Dam Safety Program is to review our dams and ensure resources are prioritized to address the highest risks.”

About 65 percent of the nearly 700 dams managed by the Corps are more than 30 years old. Twenty-eight percent have reached or passed their 50-year design life. The agency has five dam safety classifications, ranging from normal to urgent and compelling.

The Prado Dam analysis in May came more than two years after a dam spillway crisis at the nation’s tallest dam forced evacuations in the Northern California town of Oroville. A concrete spillway at Oroville Dam crumbled during winter downpours in February 2017.

The Corps determined later that year that the Whittier Narrows Dam, a 60-year-old structure about 40 miles west of Prado Dam, was structurally unsafe. Engineers found that storms could cause a premature opening of the dam’s spillway, unleashing water in the direction of more than 1 million people who live along the San Gabriel River floodplain.

It will cost about $600 million to upgrade Whittier Narrows, according to the Corps. (which makes me suspicious that they prefer to just let it collapse.)


Here is another side of the coming crisis in the GOLDEN GATE area.   The water about to pour down on Sacramento/San Francisco…has NOT WHERE TO GO!! Now, this video is climate change propaganda, but it does contain some interesting information.  Such as all the toxic waste in the Bay about to be exposed.  And the already extremely high water levels due to ocean levels rising. The Bay is already in trouble.  Next full moon?

Scientists say it’s no secret San Francisco Bay is rising, along with all of the earth’s oceans. The reason — global warming. This rise in sea level will affect everyone who lives, works, or plays near the bay. QUEST asks how high will the Bay rise and when? And what steps can communities take to plan for it?

How Fast Are California Reservoirs Filling Up?

Posted In: Water

In my previous post, about California water levels, I presented a “bar graph” showing the amount of water currently in California’s reservoirs.  However, I thought it’d be interesting to see how this has changed over the course of the last few months, since the state has gotten alot of rain and snow recently.  I decided to try and “animate” the graph for the current water year (going back to October 1, 2015) showing how the recent El Nino rain has been filling up the reservoirs in California.  Click the “animate” button below the figure and you can use the slider to change the speed of animation as it cycles through the days.  

You can really see a few interesting things:

  • how low the water level is in December
  • the start of the rains in January, which start to raise the water level
  • the March precipitation which makes the storage level rise very quickly

Notes: This graph is updated daily and is made in javascript from data gathered from the California Department of Water Resources website.

…SUMMARY… Severe storms with very large hail, tornadoes (a few of which could be strong) and damaging wind are expected, mainly across parts of the Plains from Nebraska south into west Texas. A few severe storms with large hail and gusty winds are also possible across southern South Dakota, as well as across parts of Ohio through the Middle Atlantic. …Synopsis… A synoptic trough will continue slowly east through the Rockies Friday. Mid-upper jet within the base of this trough will develop northeast, and the exit region of this feature will emerge over the central High Plains Friday afternoon. An upper ridge will persist over the upper MS Valley region, while a low-amplitude trough advances southeast through the Great Lakes and the Northeast States. At the surface, a lee cyclone will reside within the approaching upper jet exit region over northeast CO, and the dryline will mix east into western portions of the central and southern Plains. By 12Z a cold front should extend from the lower Great Lakes westward into NE where it will stall. Overnight, a Pacific front accompanying a shortwave trough will merge with the dryline across the central and southern Plains. …Central Plains region… Potential exists for a significant severe event across a portion of NE, and a moderate risk will be considered in day 1 updates. However, primary uncertainty this forecast will be how far south the cold front advances and where it will be during peak heating, which will be critical in determining the corridor of the greatest severe threat. The front should stall somewhere across central or south central NE before possibly retreating slowly north as a warm front. Dewpoints generally in the low 60s F should reside in the warm sector beneath very steep (7.5-8 C/km 700-500 mb lapse rates). This setup will favor strong instability with MLCAPE from 2500-3000 J/kg as the boundary layer warms. However, given warm air at the base of the elevated mixed layer, the warm sector will likely remain capped through at least the first half of the day. Elevated storms will probably be ongoing north of the front early with some threat for hail. Initial surface-based storm development may occur by mid-late afternoon near the triple point from northeast CO into southwest NE at the intersection of surface low/front and dryline where convergence and deep mixing, as well as the arrival of deeper forcing for ascent within upper jet exit region, should weaken the cap. These storms should intensify as they develop northeast through the very unstable warm sector along and just south of the front where 40-50 kt effective bulk shear will favor supercells with very large hail. Tornado threat should be maximized from late afternoon through the early evening as the low-level jet strengthens, contributing to increasing hodographs size with 200+ m2/s2 0-1 km storm relative helicity. More isolated supercells may develop southward through western KS. …Southern Plains… With deeper forcing accompanying the shortwave trough remaining well north of the southern Plains during the day, the question remains how much dryline initiation will occur. The warm sector east of the dryline will become moderately to strongly unstable with 2000-3000 J/kg MLCAPE and steep lapse rates. A capping inversion with the elevated mixed layer will limit thunderstorm initiation much of the day. However, strong dryline mixing and convergence may be sufficient to initiate at least isolated storms during the late afternoon or early evening.

Crumbling America1 Full Documentary

Americas Crumbling Infra-Structure.  6 years ago

To Watch This Video on DailyMotion: CLICK HERE

Why are we spending money to help foreign nations build their infrastructure while ours crumbles?  Much like we are taking in all the needy of the world and treating our poor and homeless like criminals???  We pay a fortune in innumerable taxes.  Our leaders are throwing it away and want us to pay MORE!  If we give them more money, you can bet they will just waste it as well.  We need to privatize everything and take the power away from the government. We are already paying, we ought to have to choice of where the money goes. 


NPR’s Rachel Martin talks to Tom Smith, executive director of the American Society of Civil Engineers, about the current state of the nation’s infrastructure. The group issued a report card in 2017.


So there is how politicians talk about infrastructure spending, but then there are the people who actually have to build it. Tom Smith represents a lot of those people. He’s the executive director of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and he is in our studios in Washington. Thanks for coming in.

TOM SMITH: Good morning. Thank you, Rachel.

MARTIN: So the American Society of Civil Engineers gave the United States a D-plus rating on the last report card, which came out in 2017. That seems real bad. Why…

SMITH: Absolutely.

MARTIN: …Did the U.S. get that grade?

SMITH: Absolutely. We, unfortunately, have neglected our infrastructure over the years, and much of our infrastructure is nearing the end of its useful life. And we’re at a point now where we cannot kick this can further and further down the road as we’ve been doing for many, many years now. And we need to invest in it. And we’re realizing that maintenance of infrastructure is critical. It’s not just the upfront costs we have to consider. It’s the lifecycle costs, and it’s the maintenance for a developed country like this with an interstate system that was built under Eisenhower back in the 1950s and navigable waterways built in the early 1900s under Roosevelt. We have a lot of work to do.

MARTIN: So we just haven’t been – the U.S. hasn’t been building it, Congress hasn’t been building that kind of maintenance into budgets.

SMITH: Correct. We have not been investing. And I think we really need a national vision for our infrastructure and investment in our infrastructure. We need to be looking towards the future, and not towards the past and relying on our parents and grandparents, the work that they’ve done. We have to look forward and be more sustainable, more resilient, and invest in the future.

MARTIN: Both parties kind of agree in theory that all these fixes need to get made, yet they can’t seem to find the money to invest in them. Why? I mean, in your experience, from your vantage point, what are the stumbling blocks?

SMITH: Absolutely. Well, the good news is that both parties are really talking about this. We saw it in the presidential election. We’re seeing it now in the meeting that’s taking place today. And all the rhetoric that you’re hearing is actually very, very good. The conversation has changed. People are recognizing the problem. And I think the public is recognizing the problem. And polling is showing that, that this is one of the top issues that the public would like to see Congress address in 2019.

So that’s good. How do you pay for it? People who use infrastructure have to pay for infrastructure. That’s us. And in some ways, this needs a…

MARTIN: Taxpayers.

SMITH: ….Culture change. That’s us. That’s all of us. We use infrastructure, and we’ve got to pay for it. One of the things that we talk about is transportation. That’s a big part of the funding gap for infrastructure. Right now, the federal gas tax hasn’t been increased since 1993. It’s 18.5 cents a gallon. It was increased under Clinton. It was increased under H.W. Bush. It was increased under Reagan. But it hasn’t been increased since 1993, and we’re trying to pay for current infrastructure with those dollars.

And in the meantime, we’ve got more fuel-efficient cars. So these dollars are not going as far. So short-term solution, increase the gas tax on the transportation side. I think it eventually will move to sort of vehicle-miles-traveled, as we’re piloting programs to look at that in other states right now.

MARTIN: I imagine you still also, though, need to see a heavy investment by the federal government itself?

SMITH: Absolutely. We’d like to – it needs – it requires an investment in leadership by the federal government, and also investment then by state and local government and the private sector. Those are all the tools in the toolbox that all need to be utilized to solve this problem. But it starts with leadership from the federal government.

MARTIN: You talk about how there is now a public acknowledgement that the infrastructure needs a big boost. It’s probably already pretty dire when that happens. That means the public is noticing. That means that things are breaking, literally, beneath their feet. Can you just quickly tick off what are the worst examples?

SMITH: Absolutely. Right now in the water sector, we have 240,000 waterline breaks a year. So every couple of three minutes, we’re seeing a waterline break. Sometimes that permeates down into…

MARTIN: Every 23 seconds?

SMITH: …Other networks. Every two to three minutes, we’re seeing the waterline break. So we saw that with the Orange Line being delayed last week here in the Metro system. We saw that several years ago that shut down a number of lines of the Metro system here in Washington, D.C.

Transportation. People are sitting in traffic 42 hours average, per year. That’s a vacation period.

New Orleans was among the many communities of the lower Mississippi Valley that endured flooding this weekend.

Residents across parts of New Orleans woke up to flood waters at their doorstep on Mother’s Day morning.

Homes in nearby St. Charles Parish, Louisiana, even reported flood waters entering their homes.



Water levels in New Orleans had risen to flood many of the city’s streets by Sunday morning.


Nearly 5 inches of rain inundated New Orleans from Saturday evening to early Sunday morning with close to 3 inches falling early Sunday morning alone.

The heavy rainfall caused the Mississippi River to rise even after the historic opening of the Bonnet Carré Spillway for the second time this year.

Rising Mississippi River prompts historic opening of Bonnet Carré Spillway near New Orleans
Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to break record for longest river flood event since 1927 on May 21

“While the opening of Bonnet Carré Spillway caused the river level to drop earlier in the weekend, runoff from the heavy rain caused the Mississippi River at New Orleans to rise briefly back above minor flood stage of 17.0 feet,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said.

“While levees continue to protect the city at this stage, navigation and docking will remain difficult for boaters,” she said.

The New Orleans Regional Transit Authority temporarily suspended all of its public transportation services Mother’s Day morning, and the NOPD tweeted out a warning against driving through flood water.


Regional Transit Authority@NewOrleansRTA
Our number one priority at @NewOrleansRTA is the safety of our passengers and operators. Due to safety concerns & upon recommendations from @CityOfNOLA Homeland Security, the RTA has temporarily suspended all services. Service will resume as soon as it is safe to do so.

Multiple exit ramps on freeways were closed due to water in the roadway, according to the Louisiana Department of Transportation.

In Louisiana’s neighboring state, rainfall totals from Tuesday to Sunday were as high as 14.07inches near Perkinston, Mississippi.

According to the Emergency Manager, Hancock County, Mississippi began evacuating some homes along Road 326 due to flooding along the Wolf River around 9:45 a.m. CDT.

“Much-needed dry weather will span the lower Mississippi Valley this week, but larger rivers will continue to rise and threaten homes and land along their banks,” Pydynowski said.

Flash floods cause major freight train derailment in Mississippi

Heavy overnight rains and floods caused a major freight train derailment in Hillsdale, southwest Mississippi on May 11, 2019. There are no injuries but chemicals are reportedly leaking in the water.

The derailment occurred just north of Hillsdale Road, Pearl River County Sherriff’s Office said.

Hillsdale Road at the train tracks is closed due to flooding and a derailment 0.8km (0.5 miles) north of Hillsdale Road, the office said.

Update 5/12/19

What mainstream weather experts have to say about this storm is only the tip of the iceberg of what’s troubling:

While tropical storms usually gather power from the warm waters of the ocean and then weaken once they move over land, NASA-funded research has shown some storms can actually strengthen over land by drawing from the evaporation of abundant soil moisture. The phenomenon is known as the “brown ocean” effect. ”

All the things a hurricane likes over the ocean is what we have over land right now.”

Thousands of farmers in the Midwest have been waiting for a very long time for floodwaters to recede so that they can finally plant some crops, but instead more rain just keeps on coming. As you will see below, it is being reported that the Mississippi River has now been at major flood stage for 41 days in a row, and a lot more rain is coming this week. Meteorologists are warning us that major flooding may extend into June, and that means that many farmers will not be able to plant crops at all this year. Unfortunately, as global weather patterns continue to shift many believe that what we are witnessing this year may become the “new normal” along the Mississippi River.

Detroit Suburb to Seek Emergency Declaration Due to Flooding

A suburban Detroit community plans to seek an emergency declaration due to flooding that followed heavy rainfall.

DETROIT (AP) — A suburban Detroit community plans to seek an emergency declaration due to flooding that followed heavy rainfall.

Dearborn Heights Mayor Dan Paletko said his office asked the state police Wednesday to consider a declaration and will do a financial assessment of any damage before submitting an official request to the state.

“We’re working on that right now,” Paletko said. “We’ve gone through this before.”

Dearborn Heights is just west of Detroit. Flooding primarily is located in an area referred to as South Dearborn Heights.

“We experienced 3 inches (7.62 centimeters) of rain last night,” Dearborn Heights Fire Chief Dave Brogan told WDIV-TV . “We’ve had several calls of people trapped in their homes who have medical problems or physical limitations that we’re helping … and we’ve had a lot of homes filling up with smoke from water flooding up to their electrical outlets.”

Overnight rain across the Detroit area lefts scores of basements flooded and made some local streets impassable. Some vehicles had to be towed from the water.

The state Department of Transportation said flooding closed the Southfield Freeway in both directions at Outer Drive on Detroit’s west side and the northbound Lodge Freeway in downtown Detroit. Flooding was also reported along Interstate 75 in downtown Detroit.

The National Weather Service issued a flood advisory Wednesday for some communities along the Lake Erie shoreline in southeastern Michigan. The advisory said that southwesterly wind gusts would lead to elevated water levels in Monroe County.

Heavy rains threaten river flooding in central U.S.

(Reuters) – A swath of heavy rainfall and possible severe weather moving across the central United States on Thursday is threatening to flood several areas where rivers are already swollen from previous rains, the National Weather Service said.

The storms, which may include high winds and possibly hail and tornadoes, could overflow many rivers, including parts of the Ohio and the Mississippi, that are already running higher than average, the weather service said.

“It won’t take much added rain to cause flooding,” said Bob Oravec, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland.

Flood watches have been issued in Northern Texas, eastern Oklahoma, northern Arkansas and through the lower Ohio River Valley, which includes parts of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky, Oravec said.

Rainfall in those areas in the past two weeks has been running two to three times above average, he said.

On Wednesday, six tornadoes touched down in areas straddling northern Texas and southern Oklahoma, he added.

The Oklahoma tornadoes killed two people, one in Tulsa and the other in Bokchito, about 150 miles southeast of Oklahoma City, the state’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said. Another 22 people were injured, authorities said.

The severe weather, which included up to 6 inches (15 cm) of rain in some parts of Oklahoma, prompted Governor Kevin Stitt on Wednesday to declare a state of emergency for 52 counties.

“The storm system has delivered tornadoes, high winds, and widespread rain since early Tuesday, with damage reported to homes, businesses, outbuildings, trees and power poles,” the state’s Department of Emergency Management reported.

May 1 at 12:56 PM

Severe weather erupted Tuesday across the central United States. Numerous tornadoes touched down in at least five states, with the focus of severe weather fury targeting Oklahoma.

Heavy rain and flooding also were common. Large zones of three or more inches of rain fell across parts of Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas and Illinois, in particular.

River flooding, which has plagued portions of the central United States since March, was aggravated by Tuesday’s rain. As the Mississippi River surged to near-record levels in parts of Iowa, a flood barrier failed in Davenport and water poured into the city.

More dangerous storms and flooding are predicted for the middle of the nation Wednesday.

Another severe weather volley

More than two dozen reports of tornadoes have been logged for Tuesday. At least a few more reports are likely to trickle in as the National Weather Service investigates the event.

It was the biggest tornado outbreak of the year in parts of the Plains, where places like Oklahoma were hit by numerous tornadoes after a slow start to 2019. The outbreak also caps an active month of weather that featured two large-scale severe weather outbreaks in prior weeks.
Storms got off to an unusually early start Tuesday, with tornadoes in central andeastern parts of Oklahoma around lunchtime. This is when the incredible tornado captured by drone touched down.

From that point through the afternoon and into evening, clusters of tornadic supercells dotted the landscape from Missouri to Texas. After dark, more tornadoes, including a large wedge that did major damage, scoured the landscape in southern Oklahoma as others touched down elsewhere.

On Wednesday, the southern Plains into the ArkLaTex are under the gun for dangerous weather. Another spoke of cold and buoyant air in the fast jet-stream aloft will mix with copious low-level moisture to set off storms across a region, focused on north Texas.

Tornadoes and large hail are possible. Eventually, storms might consolidate into a complex with widespread damaging winds. And with these storms will come more rain.

Flooding now, and beyond

As has been the story for weeks, flooding is ongoing at many locations along the Mississippi River, as well as tributaries to it, and other major waterways across the Midwest and the South.

In Davenport, Iowa, a flash-flood emergency was issued late Tuesday as a flood barrier failed and water poured into the city. Although only a small part of downtown flooded, streets turned to lakes in some sections. The failure was spurred by the Mississippi River rising to near-historic levels. A gauge at Rock Island near the city is poised to threaten levels seen during the 1993 flood on Wednesday before waters subside.

Tuesday’s situation in Davenport is not expected to worsen, as the Mississippi River is heavily contained in most areas.

To the south, an area from Illinois to Oklahoma saw round after round of flash-flood inducing rain Tuesday. Wednesday morning, most of Missouri was under flood warnings as numerous creeks and streams overflowed their banks.

Any additional rainfall is likely to exacerbate it, and more is on the way over the next few days. On Wednesday, a moderate risk for excessive rainfall is focused on the Dallas-Fort Worth area, with a lower but still notable heavy rainfall threat extending into a larger region and then shifting eastward for Thursday.

This latest round of high water should peak in the next few days, with levels falling off thereafter. In many cases, levels dropping still means major flooding ongoing into next week.

The renewed round of flooding comes because the storm train has been running since winter. Signs continue to point to an active period ahead for much of the Lower 48.

With an outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for May that calls for good chances of above-average precipitation in the same regions already experiencing flooding, it’s likely that widespread high water is a story that will persist in the weeks ahead.

And, of course, patterns that cause flooding tend to also bring thunderstorms. May is peak for tornadoes in the United States, as more of the country comes under threat from violent storms.

Published on May 1, 2019

Flood Threat As mentioned earlier, flash flooding will also be a significant concern in the Plains and Midwest this week. A widespread area of 1 to 3 inches of rainfall is expected from parts of Texas into Michigan. Some areas will see locally higher amounts topping 3 inches, especially where overnight thunderstorm clusters occur. This additional rainfall will increase the chance for flooding this week, especially in areas that receive heavy rainfall in a short period of time. The National Weather Service has issued flood watches for parts of the Plains and mid-Mississippi Valley. River flooding concerns may also increase late this week, as many river gauges along the Mississippi River and in the Midwest are already in at least minor flood stage. The ground is saturated in many locations in this region. Oklahoma City has received more than 4.5 inches of rain in April, and Dallas/Fort Worth has picked up 6.74 inches so far this month, almost 4 inches above average. Storm Reports So Far A line of severe storms roared through parts of Kansas overnight Sunday, producing hail up to baseball-size and damaging winds. Up to 20 power poles were downed by high winds at the Eureka, Kansas, airport, and a semi was blown off U.S. Highway 169 near Greeley, Kansas, injuring the driver.

What Happens If the Dam Collapses?

The experts I speak with tell me, that in the event of a dam collapse, the water will come rushing out at 75 MPH. The water will be 30 feet high. Sacramento would be under water in less than hour. DWS says it would take two hours for the water to reach Sacramento. The point is largely irrelevant. The city could not be successfully evacuated within two hours. Almost two million lives are at risk. 

If the dam collapses, the CALEXIT people will realize their goal of eliminating California’s contribution to the nation’s agricultural and world’s supply of food. The affected Central Valley is one of the top suppliers of fruits, nuts and vegetables in the world. Spot famines would result. Further 30% of America’s retail crosses Interstate 15 and that would be stopped immediately and this at a time when the retail collapse of America is already underway with the closing of 6,000 stores in the first quarter of 2019. This event could collapse our economy. And I want to stress that is a preliminary report. I have prepared a summary report below in the following. I will be publishing photos as they arrive and are converted in a publishable format.

Update 4/20/19

“We expect the flooding will get worse and become more widespread,” a National Weather Service official said.

March 21, 2019, 9:38 PM CDT  – By Dennis Romero

Late winter’s deadly flooding could turn into catastrophic spring flooding in the Midwest and beyond, forecasters said.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s “spring outlook” issued Thursday came with dire warnings, even as flooding was already tormenting states including Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri. “More than 200 million people are at risk for flooding in their communities,” Ed Clark, director of NOAA’s National Water Center in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, said in a statement.

Three deaths from the Midwest flooding have been confirmed, and on Thursday, President Donald Trump approved Nebraska’s request for federal disaster assistance. The Nebraska National Guard used helicopters Thursday to drop hay bales to feed cows stranded by floodwaters.

Heavy rain supplemented by rapid snow melt has widened rivers and put farms underwater. But Mary C. Erickson, deputy director of National Weather Service, on Thursday warned that the trouble may just be beginning.

“The major flooding we’ve already experienced across the lower Missouri [River region] and the lower to middle Mississippi [River] valley is a preview to what we expect the rest of the spring,” she said. “In fact, we expect the flooding will get worse and become more widespread.”

The outlook states that spring, which this year concludes on June 20, could bring major or moderate flooding in 25 states, with at least two-thirds of the continental United States expected to see an “elevated” flood risk and above-average precipitation.

Erickson said flooding could stretch into May.

Jack Boston, senior meteorologist at AccuWeather, said the private forecaster has a similar outlook for spring, with most of the flooding in Missouri and Mississippi river regions likely occurring in April.

With as much as 19 inches of snow on the ground in parts of the Dakotas and a lot of snow remaining in western Minnesota, the situation doesn’t bode well, he said: “All that snow has to melt.”

California and Colorado mountains also have above-normal snow pack that has been boosted by a weak El Niño weather condition in the Pacific, he said.

That could contribute to spring avalanches, Boston said.

WATCH this weather pattern!  Where is all that water going to go?  Be prepared!  We are already inundated across most of the country.  Our Dams and Levees are weak and ready to overflow and/or burst.  Batton down the hatches!

God bless everyone, T mail 5430 Birdwood Rd. #416 Houston, Texas 77096 crankywxguy blog……Severe Thunderstorms Possible From the Southern Plains to the Lower Mississippi Valley Midweek  A threat of severe thunderstorms is in play in parts of the South the first week of April. The threat begins in the southern Plains Wednesday and Wednesday night. It then migrates into the lower Mississippi Valley Thursday. Large hail and damaging thunderstorm winds are the main threats. However, a few tornadoes are possible. Severe thunderstorms are possible Wednesday and Thursday in parts of the South, ushering in the typical seasonal peak of severe weather in the United States. A jet-stream disturbance currently bringing some rain and mountain snow to the West will swing into the Plains by Wednesday. Ahead of that disturbance, warmer and somewhat more humid air will be pulled northward from the Gulf of Mexico, eroding the colder air in place from early this week. The jet-stream disturbance, cold air topping warmer, humid air and air-lifting surface features such as a dryline and a stationary front should provide the ingredients needed for at least some severe thunderstorms Wednesday into Thursday. We’re not expecting a widespread severe weather outbreak in this case, despite it being the notoriously dangerous month of April, but a few of these storms could be hazardous. Here is our latest forecast. Severe Weather Timeline, Threats Wednesday-Wednesday Night Scattered severe thunderstorms are expected to flare up near the dryline late Wednesday afternoon or early evening in western Oklahoma, perhaps far southern Kansas and far northwestern Texas. This activity may spread eastward into the rest of Oklahoma and parts of Arkansas, North Texas and perhaps far southwestern Missouri Wednesday night. Large hail appears to be the main threat with these storms, though damaging thunderstorm wind gusts are also possible and a tornado or two can’t be ruled out. Thursday, the threat of scattered severe thunderstorms shifts farther eastward, stretching from East Texas and Arkansas into Louisiana, Mississippi, southwestern Tennessee, parts of Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle. Large hail and damaging winds appear to be the primary severe weather threats, but a tornado or two are also possible.

200 Million People At Risk: National Weather Service Warns Apocalyptic Midwest Floods Are “A Preview Of What We Expect Throughout The Rest Of The Spring”

The flooding that just struck the middle part of the country was the worst blow to U.S. farmers in decades, but now the National Weather Service is telling us that it was just “a preview of what we expect throughout the rest of the spring”.  Can that possibly be true?  After the immense devastation that we have already witnessed, how much worse can the flooding possibly get?  Already we have seen thousands of homes and farms be completely destroyed, and we are being told that the total economic damage is in the billions of dollars.  Sadly, the truth is that a lot worse is still yet to come.  Thanks to a very snowy winter, a massive amount of snow is going to melt during the next several weeks, and that alone would produce tremendous flooding.  But on top of all of that melting snow, forecasters are telling us that it will be a very rainy spring.  In fact, the Weather Channel is warning that there will be “above-average precipitation across much of the Lower 48” over the next three months, and one meteorologist is forecasting that it is “not looking like we are going to see any dry stretches anytime soon”.  And this is on top of all of the very heavy rainfall that has been falling in recent weeks.  At this point, the Mississippi River basin has already gotten “three times as much rainfall as in a normal year”.

Even without any additional flooding, U.S. food production would be way down this year.  The recent flooding is going to keep thousands of farmers from planting crops on time, and thousands of others are not going to be able to use their fields at all.

But when you factor in what is going to happen over the next three months, we are talking about an agricultural disaster of unprecedented magnitude in modern American history.

At this moment, some areas in the Upper Midwest still have “more than 20 inches of snow” on the ground…

In the eastern Dakotas and Minnesota, more than 20 inches of snow remains on the ground. The Missouri, Ohio, and Mississippi Rivers drain the central United States, but it takes several weeks for the water to travel downstream. In the meantime, emergency officials are warning local residents to make evacuation plans as well as purchase flood insurance in certain areas.

All of that water has to go somewhere, and authorities are warning that 200 million people are at risk

The record-setting floods deluging the Midwest are about to get a lot worse. Fueled by rapidly melting snowpack and a forecast of more rainstorms in the next few weeks, federal officials warn that 200 million people in 25 states face a risk through May.

A lot of people out there seem to think that the flooding will just be isolated to the major rivers, but that is simply not true.

Yes, all-time flooding records will continue to be shattered along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, but the National Weather Service is telling us that nearly “the entire eastern two-thirds of the nation” will be dealing with flooding this spring…

Almost the entire eastern two-thirds of the nation should see flooding this spring, National Weather Service deputy director Mary Erickson said at a news conference on Thursday. Some 25 states are forecast to see “moderate” to “major” flooding, the weather service said.

The Midwest floods are “a preview of what we expect throughout the rest of the spring,” she said. “The flooding this year could be worse than what we have seen in previous years … even worse than the historic floods we saw in 1993 and 2011,” Erickson added.

Are you starting to get the picture?

This is the worst case scenario for U.S. flooding that surpasses all previous worst case scenarios.  Thousands more farms will be destroyed.  Billions of dollars worth of additional damage will be done to our agricultural industry.  Food production is going to come up way short, and we are all going to experience tremendous pain at the supermarket as food prices skyrocket.

If you live in any of the following areas, you need to have your emergency plan ready, because things are about to get really, really bad…

The areas under the highest risk of moderate to major flooding, according to NOAA, are the upper, middle and lower Mississippi River basins, including the mainstem Mississippi River, Red River of the North, Great Lakes, eastern Missouri River, lower Ohio River, lower Cumberland River and Tennessee River basins.

U.S. farmers have already lost millions upon millions of bushels of wheat, corn and soybeans to the flooding that has already happened.  As I have repeatedly stressed, our planet is changing, weather patterns are becoming more severe, and even if they understood what is happening there is absolutely nothing that the radical environmentalists can do to stop it.

Just look at what is happening on the other side of the world.  Australia was just hit by a “severe category 3 cyclone”, and this came exactly one day after it was hit by a category 4 cyclone

A severe category 3 cyclone blew into the key mining region of Pilbara in Western Australia Sunday, forcing evacuations and a halt to port operations, as the north of the country dealt with the effects of an even more powerful storm that hit the previous day.

Cyclone Veronica weakened from a category 4 storm before its core winds hit the coast near the mining centre of Port Hedland, but officials warned the system was slow moving and would continue pounding the region with gale force winds and heavy rain for 24 to 48 hours.

We are witnessing things that we have never seen before, and “the new normal” is just going to keep getting stranger and stranger.

If you live anywhere in the middle portion of the country, please take this flooding very seriously.  Authorities are using apocalyptic language to describe this crisis, and they are not exaggerating the potential threat one bit.

An Infrastructure Plan for America’s Waterways  
Posted on 

U.S. infrastructure is in bad shape. Across the country, streets marred with potholes, overcrowded airports, and out-of-date school facilities have become the norm. But the United States’ failing infrastructure causes more than just commonplace inconveniences. Crumbling infrastructure poses real dangers to Americans’ health and safety, as illustrated by the contaminated water system in Flint, Michigan; flooding due to poor storm water drainage systems in Texas and Louisiana; the failing metro system in Washington, D.C.; and blackouts caused by extreme weather and outdated electrical grids in cities across the country.

A new report from the American Society of Civil Engineers, or ASCE, quantifies how the United States’ chronic underinvestment in infrastructure—spending only half of what is needed—has created an investment gap that affects the economy, safety, jobs, communities, and health. As infrastructure continues to age without proper investment and upkeep, the costs to maintain and repair it continue to rise over time. The report found that if infrastructure deficiencies are not addressed, it could cost the economy almost $4 trillion in gross domestic product, or GDP, and 2.5 million jobs by 2025. In short, policymakers’ short-term cost cuts will cause massive expenses in the long term.

The country’s dam infrastructure is not exempt from this underinvestment. With an ASCE grade of a D, the country’s nearly two million dams are one of the most pressing infrastructure challenges for safety, the environment, and the economy. While most of these dams were originally built for economic purposes—including to power mills and factories developed during the industrial revolution and for flood and debris control, water storage and irrigation, hydropower, navigation, and recreation—many of their original purposes and benefits have diminished. In fact, many dams are now obsolete, costly, aging, and unsafe.

After Largest Dam Removal in U.S. History, This River Is Thriving | National Geographic

June 2, 2016 – Conservationists can now point to the largest dam removal project in the U.S. as a success story. The ecosystem of Washington’s Elwha River has been thriving since the removal of its hydroelectric dam system. Recent surveys show dramatic recovery, especially in the near shore at the river’s mouth, where the flow of sediment has created favorable habitat for the salmon population. A new generation of salmon species, some of which are endangered, are now present in the river. Some hope that the restoration of the Elwha River will become a shining example for the removal of dams across the U.S.
