I wander where this is going to end up, 5+" and still poring down. Schools closed for it today. will get some pics when it gets lighter. Just found out that in are flat land that we have, enough water ran that it washed the cars and ambulances off the roads. No tornados here. State highways are closed [flooded], no one moves very far. Now they are watching 2 dams in Monticello for possible failure.:O:O Update both highway bridges have been closed until inspected, one person died in this[got washed away] and water will probley be gone by noon tomarrow, and the power went off for 4 hours. Boil order on, and ended up with 5 3/4" in about 7 hrs. Only good thing is the beach front propety moved closer. SORRY ROY}:):O

Hate to see all this happening Levi. Just wish there was more we all could do. All this natural disaster going on and all we see on the news is "BLA-BLA-BLA" from our fine "candidates"

Looks like the state got all of the highways open. The trailer park will be completly junked, water was 6 feet up in them, almost all of the over flow is gone now I got a new trailer in the back [the remains of the office trialer crushed at the US231 highway,it went under the bridge looks pretty straight though], all of the people from the trailer park are out of a home yet.

Just got done looking at the links, WOW! Very sad, so many people out of there homes.:( Around here the memories of the Mississippi river flood of '93 are still vivid. Never been directly effected, but know plenty who have. I hope you and yours are all able to move on.
