Storm-ravaged central US braces for more tornadoes, flooding into Tuesday

It will be no rest for the weary across the central United States as lives and property will continue to be threatened by severe weather and flooding this Memorial Day holiday weekend and into Tuesday.

"The overall weather pattern that has been in place across the U.S. will continue early this week, which will bring more rounds of severe weather to the Plains," according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Brett Rathbun.

Sunday started with flooding downpours spreading from southeastern Kansas to southwestern Missouri.

"The main focus of thunderstorms later Sunday into Sunday night will set up from western Texas into the central Plains," Rathbun stated. "The risk may also expand into parts of South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana, which have not received much in the way of severe weather over the past week."

1. The farmers in those states already devestated by the Trump Tariffs.....

And now more extreme weather. They and many are on the verge of bankruptcy.

How much more will they be able to take?

2. I have friends in Western

Kansas that have not been able to get home or out from their homes for at least 2 weeks. Mud roads in a state that is broke ass broke because of the trickle down Brownback era. We have had flooding rains that the area South of Topeka is either flooded or close and highways have been closed, sometimes just for a day and some will not open for a while. The whole state is close to serious weather caused issues....planting times are almost over, things are going to get hard fast.

4. MY Sister's back yard is flooded. My home town is almost one big river

the streets are flooded everyone's basement is a mess. Farmers have flooded fields

the town has had 2 tornadoes in 3 years and now this. They will not be able to recover.

it is a poor town with dwindling income opportunities and either farming or oil both of which #fatdonnie is fucking up.


and it isn't over yet .

but the saddest thing is probably 90% of them voted for #fatdonnie




CLIMATE CHANGE ANYONE?

8. My friends in Wichita

checked in with me this afternoon, they are all fine. I know it is wet but they are OK. No flooding in their neighborhoods and no problems, just the worry we all have that there are places that have been flooded and none of us want to be them.

7. Weather Service River observations...

See: https://water.weather.gov/ahps/

Use +/- to expand the map and drag it with your mouse. Click on any colored dot to see current gauge levels and predictions.

You can also go to any one of the 14 individual River Forecast Centers for better detail by selecting them in the drop-down to the right.

Example - Mississippi Valley RFCs:
https://water.weather.gov/ahps/region.php?rfc=mvrfc

I'm seeing more purple dots (major flooding) every few days.

Current status (entire US):

56 Gauges: Major Flooding
110 Gauges: Moderate Flooding
217 Gauges: Minor Flooding
248 Gauges: Near Flood Stage
5204 Gauges: No Flooding
2580 Flood Category Not Defined
41 At or Below Low Water Threshold
517 Gauges: Observations Are Not Current
83 Gauges: Out of Service

It's interesting to explore these gauge maps but also disheartening to remember that every gauge chart showing in red or purple probably means a lot of human misery.

....KY.......
