Record Flooding

All time record flooding is ongoing on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers after a deluge of heavy and repeated rains the past 30 days. Several states have seen 15 to 20 inches or more of heavy rain in less than a month! Check out this picture of precipitation estimates over the past 30 days:

This has pushed many rivers to major flood stage, and in some cases shattering the all time record flood stages in well over 100 years of records. Cities and town have been completely inundated. Levees have been breached and hundreds upon hundreds of square miles have flooded. For additional details and specific river levels CLICK HERE.
