I just read online that Table Rock is releasing 60,000 cfs? Is that correct? that is more than 2011 and will be a record. Can some of you down there go get pictures of the landing etc. Its my only way to really gauge what its like.

I am amazed that this happens again and again after 50 years of no events. Huge rains here in the dallas area headed your way. Unbelievable. Prayers to those involved.

My aunts friends from Arkansas who have lived there all their lives said this is the worst they have ever seen. I guess just too much rain to really prepare for in those hills. Tornado hit I20 east of Dallas. Cars all over the ditches many pp. still trapped. up to 40 cars. Stilll moving NE from Canton.

There’s a potential of 8 to 9 inches of rainfall in the Beaver (Lake) watershed — not counting what will fall over Table Rock,” said U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Little Rock District Spokeswoman Laurie Driver.

The Corps is “walking a fine line” between telling people that the “sky is falling” and there’s a potential “for the sky to fall,” she said.

“There’s a lot of different factors that make it hard for us to say, ‘This is definitely going to happen,’” Driver said. “What we’re telling people is, ‘If you got wet during 2008, 2011 and 2015, you want to be watching this situation.’

“We may have larger releases than in 2015.”

I was there for the past three floods and am so sorry for those involved. All I can offer is prayers at this time and please find safe havens and save your lives most importantly.

From Fayetteville to Branson the total rainfall is 6"-8" now. Everywhere else is 3"-6". Everywhere.

The Kings is 29,200 cfs and the James is 38,700 cfs now, with only 10,000 cfs going out of TRL. Beaver is less than a foot from flood stage now and release hasn't started yet. It will have to, and that will add to TRL.

Add to that 800 miles of shoreline, hills all dumping water into TRL. We've been here 20 years and the dry creeks and ditches have never been like they are right now . . . and constant. I've given up on the docks. They will be unusable for awhile. Hopefully they will stay safe, not break cables and stuff like that.

It took 3 hours for TRL to go up another foot this time. Less than 8 feet from flood stage. So, doing the math, without increasing the release, that will occur tomorrow.

Those below TRL dam need to leave now.

we're screwed

The rains look to extend all the way south of Dallas up to Branson. So its on the way. We just had some huge rains and flooding is occurring here now.

I think getting out of the low areas is a good idea ahead of time just in case.
Beaver sounds iffy already and more on the way. Sad sad times for those impacted.

30APR2017 0700 928.44
30APR2017 0800 928.79

a foot every 2 1/2 - 3 hours

Beaver is over floodstage (1130), and they are beginning to let some into TRL. The 946 is TRL under the Beaver dam.

30APR2017 0800 1130.91 946.00 4006

946 at the upper end and 928 at the dam!!!!!!

James: 74400 cfs . . . almost 20 feet over flood stage

Kings: 35700 cfs

6"-8" Fayetteville to Springfield, Mountain Home to near Rolla, Clinton to Rolla

Some 10" near West Plains

3"-5" EVERYWHERE else

Another little batch coming shortly.

Flooding widespread . . . DW just showed me Dogwood Canyon. I heard one of the trolleys floated away and hit/damaged the 86 HWY bridge, so 86 is closed.

Dogter is happy to be out of the bathtub, where she was all day yesterday.

From Brandon Beck, Meteorologist for KY3.

"Table Rock Lake has risen almost nine feet in the last 24 hours. It is hours away from hitting top of flood pool (931')."

As reported way up yonder somewhere, Bull Shoals had a huge cushion, the only one of the three that did.

It has come up 10' m/l,

28APR2017 2200 665.74
30APR2017 0900 675.21

Top Flood Pool: 695.0

reducing that cushion from 30 feet to 20 feet. So, in two or three days, it will be at flood stage. (All three will be)


More rain coming.

From the above facts as listed it appears that TRL has about 7 feet of room before overtopping the gates?

Is that correct?

And has at least 125,000 coming in the James and King?

I was there for the last huge releases and it was terrible at 100,000.

My concern is that there is no way TRL can hold this water and in fact the emergency spillway will have to be opened? This is unbelievable. I loved The Landing when I lived there just for the walks and atmosphere etc.

Here in Texas same thing going on as lakes are full and this will be a huge flood event.

5 killed in tornado about 30 miles away from me last night.

After the first flood in 09 I wanted to rehab a house down on the river below TRD. Of course it flooded again and was glad I did not. They tore it down finally but still I looked at property there to rehab. Divorce took that option out but here we are again looking at flooding below the dam. So thankful I did not do that yet so sorry that so many are suffering such huge losses.

West Plains looks very bad to the east of Branson too. Town is under water.

Our need to build along the rivers back in the 1800's has caused untold misery to later generations.

Beaver Lake Releases Sunday Morning

http://www.ky3.com/content/news/Corp...420841073.html

ROGERS, Ark. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began a spillway release Sunday morning from Beaver Dam.

The seven spillway gates have been opened six-foot releasing 55,000 cubic feet per second. The lake is forecasted crest at 1,131.5 feet above sea level. Future rainfall may cause the Corps to adjust releases at Beaver Lake.

That will force Table Rock Dam to release anywhere from 40,000-60,000 cubic feet per second.
