Heavy Rains Unleash Deadly Midwest Flooding

Aug 9, 2013, 7:51 AM EDT

See the latest news and images from several states affected by flooding: --

ST. LOUIS -- Torrential rains continued across the nation's midsection on Thursday, causing flash flooding that killed a woman and a child, damaged homes and forced multiple water rescues.

Up to 10 inches of rain pounded southern Missouri overnight. A woman died near Jane, Mo., in the far southwestern corner of the state where creek water washed over a highway, sweeping away her car.

"Early this morning it just unleashed," said Greg Sweeten, emergency management director in McDonald County, MO.

Authorities in the south-central Missouri town of Waynesville continued to search for 23-year-old Jessica D. Lee, whose car was swept up in a flash flood early Tuesday. The body of her 4-year-old son, Elyjah, was found Tuesday, hours after his mother made a distress call from her cell phone.

Flash flood warnings were common in Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Tennessee. And things could get worse: Heavy rain is in the forecast into the weekend.

"We had significant flash flooding three mornings in a row in some part of southern Missouri," said weather.com senior meteorologist Jon Erdman. "Unfortunately, this scenario is all too common in mid-late summer. Light winds aloft, deep moisture and stalled fronts spell flooding rainfall."

Missouri has gotten the worst of it. Some gauges near Waynesville recorded 15 inches of rain in a two-day period. One-day totals of 6 inches or more were common across the width of the southern part of the Show-Me State.

The area near the tourist boom town of Branson, Mo., was hit especially hard early Thursday. At least 100 homes and businesses in Hollister, Mo., right next to Branson, were damaged when Turkey Creek flooded. Taney County's assistant emergency management director, Melissa Duckworth, said 26 people had to be rescued by boat, mostly from two mobile home parks. Another 50 evacuated on their own.

Boats also were brought in to rescue 15 campers who were spending the night on an island in the Elk River near the McDonald County, Mo., town of Noel. In fact, the county boat rescuing them broke down, and the rescuers themselves had to be saved by a boat from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Sweeten said.

In Waynesville, authorities assume that Lee didn't survive.

"As rapid as that water was it was like a raging river," Pulaski County Sheriff Ron Long said, who said the normally docile creek became akin to "a Class V whitewater river."

Interstate 44 near Jerome in south-central Missouri reopened Thursday after flood waters receded, but dozens of other roadways were closed in southern Missouri.

Other states had plenty of problems, too.

Soggy south-central Kansas was under a flood warning after up to 6 inches of rain fell early Thursday in the center of the state. Since the storms began Sunday, hundreds of Kansas homes have been damaged, mostly by water in basements and sewage backups, said Megan Hammersmith, director of the Central Kansas Chapter of the American Red Cross.

An estimated 10 inches of rain fell overnight in parts of Benton County, Ark., prompting the county to declare an emergency. Benton County Emergency Management director Robert McGowen said crews have performed 15 water rescues. More than three dozen roads and bridges were closed, but no injuries were reported.

Tennessee, Oklahoma See Dangerous Flash Flooding

Heavy rain in Tennessee also triggered flash flooding that required several water rescues. Nashville firefighters waded into waist-deep water to lead residents of one apartment complex to higher ground. Others in the region had to be rescued from balconies and rooftops. High water even stopped traffic near the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.

In Oklahoma, Joe Dan Morgan, emergency management director for Ottawa County said up to 6 inches of rain caused flash flooding in the Miami area, and more rain was coming.

"There's not much we can do, sit and wait," Morgan said. "We've warned everybody to be careful. When you're in low-lying areas use that old adage, 'turn around, don't drown."

I haven't been keeping up with the news on flooding... There has been a lot of course.
Currently it looks like there was record breaking rain in portions of Colorado.
4-6 inches in less than two hours in places.
I watched a heart - stopping swift water rescue this AM...(Live coverage.)
Roads have washed out cars floating away, overturned...Death toll is rising..
At least two dead in Boulder area, one in Colorado Springs...

AMAZING Video: Man Rescued from Overturned Car during Severe Flood Striking Colorado

LINK: http://youtu.be/s7uwwq6Z7Io

Published on Sep 12, 2013 
(CNN) -- Emergency crews in Colorado braved racing flood waters early Friday, rescuing a man from a partially submerged car, live on television.
The scene unfolded in video from CNN affiliate KCNC after a night of torrential rain that left at least two people dead amid rock slides and flash flooding that collapsed homes, put dams at risk and forced hundreds of people to evacuate.
Firefighters on a yellow dinghy bobbing in the swift waters rescued the man from the overturned car about 12 miles southeast of Boulder.
The man, whose identity wasn't immediately known, walked out of the water with the aid of firefighters. He was taken away on a stretcher. His condition was not immediately known.
 Deadly flooding in Colorado Massive rains swamp Colorado
Video from KNCN also showed two other vehicles, one dangling from the edge of a washed-out road, the other in the water beneath what appeared to be a telephone pole. The station said two people were rescued earlier and taken to a hospital.
In a separate incident, one person died after being trapped in a collapsed building, in Jamestown, Boulder County spokeswoman Gabbie Boerkircher said.
The circumstances of the other death weren't clear early Thursday, but the Colorado Springs Fire Department said on Twitter that the body had been recovered by a "heavy rescue team."
Numerous other buildings had collapsed, but it was unclear how many or if there were any other injuries, Boerkircher said. A rock slide was hampering access to the site.
About 20 miles north of Boulder, in Lyons, water was flowing over the tops of five dams, Boerkircher said. The dams had not broken, but emergency officials were monitoring them very closely, she said.
Officials urged residents in the county of 305,000 people to stay home and off flooded and sometimes impassible roads. City and county offices, as well as the University of Colorado-Boulder -- where minor flooding was reported -- were closed Thursday.
The school had to move more than 400 graduate students and research faculty members from family housing units because of flooding, a spokesman said. The school also had to relocate 13 undergraduates from two residence halls, the spokesman said. No injuries were reported on campus.
The chaos is the result of the enormous rainfall overnight -- around 7 inches in Boulder, CNN meteorologists said.
"The rain, it almost feels like hail, the drops are so thick," University of Colorado-Boulder student Ryan Colla told CNN affiliate KUSA. "It just keeps coming and coming, and when you think it's going to subside, it's going to rain down harder."
The sudden influx of water turned Boulder Creek -- which runs through the city and the university campus -- into a high, fast, muddy and dangerous torrent, Colla told the station.
"It freaked us out," he said.

Flash Flooding on Navajo Nation Displaces Scores, Wrecks Homes With Mold and Mud


ICTMN Staff
September 14, 2013

Quote
Parts of the Navajo Nation are recovering after severe flooding caused by heavy rain in the reservation’s Central Agency area, displacing families and affecting people in Chinle, Many Farms, Rock Point, Tselani/Cottonwood, Dennehotso, and Tonalea among other towns.

More flash flood warnings were expected into the weekend, and other parts of the Navajo Nation were feared to be at risk as President Ben Shelley issued warnings and contemplated updating the flooding-induced state of emergency he had declared in August.

The Navajo Nation has been plagued with water woes ranging from a years-long drought, to a winter deep freeze that disrupted water supply, to the current inundation.

More flooding here in Denver/Boulder/ basically the whole front range area.  This is not normal.  More rain expected tonight and tomorrow.  Another 6 inches just came down in the city of Aurora.  Flash flooding again.  It is really devastating.

Marzstar I hope you are safe from the flooding...That's a really bad situation and will be worse today since it apparently has not stopped raining.
At least 1800 evacuations in Colorado. 500 still not accounted for.
There have been a few deaths in Colorado and also in New Mexico.
Just heard on the Weather Channel really, really heavy rainfall near Denver...

pbutter thanks for your post. I hadn't heard about flooding there...
I hope the indian nations there have the resources to deal with this situation.
I've been "on the road to Dennehotso." That's one of the phrases in our family. We got stuck in the sandy road there. We had to push our 58 Olds for awhile, until we got to more stable ground.  :)
Not sure how we got there...a bit off the beaten path.

Thank you for your reply.  The weather is not improving.  They are predicting more rain.  More people not accounted for and/or are missing.  I look outside right now and rain is coming down hard again.  A creek bed that is close to where I live is now flooding again.  The situation in Colorado is not getting better.  Many towns now have to boil their water because of it being contaminated.  It really is wide spread.  It is heartbreaking.  I pray for the families who are missing loved ones. 

Love to all,

Mar

Marzstar, is it too late for you to safely evacuate? Is there an unflooded road adjacent to your home?
Do you have access to reliable info on the radio?
Yes the rain is still coming down...they are showing it on the news... About 482 people unaccounted for... About 5-6 people known dead... National Guard helicopter rescues have been temporarily halted...not sure why. One person in charge said they rescued as many people as Katrina already, at that point. They cannot get through to Jamestown - oh yes they just did on the western side...
Entire towns are cut off...electricity and phones are out in many places... Boulder Office of Emergency Management says stay off the road... web boulderemm.com  http://boulderoem.com/emergency-status

On CNN they said "The flooding in Colorado is a thousand-year event."
Not sure how any one would know that for sure... Maybe this is one of the earth changes we have said would happen...
It gives me a weird feeling...always thought of Colorado as a safe place. I have been all around that area, all those major areas. Used to have relatives in Greeley, Ft. Collins, Denver. Been to Boulder etc.
