My latest scoop (2 hours old) is that they are open 49,000 and that the predicted crest is 933-933.5 occurring about noon Monday.

936 is the magic number. From our 2008, 2011, and 2015 episodes, we learned that at that level the catwalk to open the gates is under water. So, it's that catwalk that is the bugaboo
Thought that was taken care of. I remember reading that the CoE was seeking bids for work to correct the prpblem.
No more ploitics allowed on 1b, so I guess we can't say why it wasn't if it wasn't

***URGENT MESSAGE FROM BRANSON EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT***
This is an emergency message from the City of Branson Emergency Management. The Corps of Engineers will be increasing flows from the gates of Table Rock Dam from 49 thousand to 65 thousand cubic feet per second at 6 pm. Please take appropriate actions to secure personal property and evacuate areas prone to flooding when flood gates open. Remember, utility services in these areas may be turned off if affected by flood waters. Early evacuation prior to dark is imperative.

65000 going out and 83300 coming in just from the James.

Little bits of rain in the area now. 2 inches expected Tuesday night.

The spillway release from Beaver is the same amount as the spillway release from TRL.

Beaver got stopped going up at 1131.25 22 hours ago. Now it is right at flood stage, 1130.

TRL has not been stopped yet, and is at: 01MAY2017 1400 934.53 It's hovering around there, about to be stopped from going up.

James and Kings are both backed off quite a lot, but James is still 33600. Kings is 6800. Those and what's being released from Beaver is still more than is being released from TRL, so figure it out.

KC bridge is closed, so it's the long way to and from town. I did some sight-seeing coming home today.

Cold and windy and nasty today.

NWS for Tuesday night and Wednesday:

Generally speaking, we are looking at 1.50" to 2.50" amounts. With soils saturated and rivers/streams very high, this rainfall will only add to the
flooding concerns.

I can tell we have dock damage, likely a broken cable at least. It was OK until it got windy. It will be awhile before I can access/assess it, and see what else there is.

Ours won't be the only one.

I am seeing 933.82 for TR. Is that correct. If so they have it going down. Unbelievable how much water they can get rid of from that lake thru the gates alone. Good grief.

Looks like they dodged the bullet again or ...its a calculated and carefully executed plan that seems to work every time? Hmmm...

Yes, It's back down to way-too-high, and the Corps is receiving kudos for a nice and orderly flood.

Maybe it's the frequency, and getting good at it, that makes it seem less of an issue than it used to be.

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.

Pretty day today.

Did they close it in 2011? If they did, I don't remember it.

Wow! Here's a bullet we dodged . . .

3" - 5" all the way from Chanute, KS to Osage Beach.

Beaver is still 1/2 foot from flood stage, TRL is 2 feet over, and only Bull Shoals has a cushion.
