Tuttle Creek lake is at 1133.27 , which is roughly 2.5 feet from capacity. All of the campgrounds have been evacuated and are closed til further notice. The road over the dam is now closed to traffic. ACOE has announced they will begin releasing water from the outlet tubes on Wednesday ,beginning with 15,000 gallons per second ,increasing to double that amount by Thursday to try to counter the inflow.

On the way home we saw people near the Big Blue and Kansas rivers sand bagging and boarding windows of homes and business's. We are under a Severe T storm watch and Tornado watch and there is severe T-storms with torrential rainfall occurring over the watershed areas for Tuttle creek lake right now. Flood warnings are up for most the northeast corner of the state. :(
As of now I bet you got me wrong

Shot 'em, now I'm gonna hang 'em, then I'm gonna burn 'em!
Damn Zombies. Can't ever be too dead to suit me.

Things have mostly settled down in KS. Sons girlfriend was driving through Bonner Springs when the tornado came through. She sent him a frightening pic looking out her windshield of swirling black and grey clouds and heavy rain. Then nothing for two hours. .prayers for those affected by storms tonight. BTW , there are tornado warnings right now in NYC

Large Tornado Touches Down Near Kansas City; At Least 12 Injured

The storms have subsided here, damage assessment, control, & assistance are developing. I feel bad that posting links is all I can do with this. I shouldn't feel bad, but I do.

The city will be closing Fleur Dr. as a precaution. It won't affect me if I need to BO. I remember trying to traverse it in a 4 Pt 'cracker-jack' in '93. We had to turn back.

"This Is Not "Normal": US Suffers More Than 500 Tornadoes In The Last 30 Days

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05- ... st-30-days

The mainstream media has been using the term “uncharted territory” to describe the unusual tornado outbreaks that have been happening in the middle of the country, but I don’t think that truly captures the historic nature of what we are witnessing. Over the last 30 days, there have been more than 500 tornadoes in the United States. That is not normal. In fact, Tuesday was the 12th day in a row when at least eight tornadoes were spawned, and that is a new all-time record. Community after community in the Midwest now looks like a “war zone”, and billions upon billions of dollars of damage has already been done. But this crisis is far from over, because forecasters are telling us that more powerful storms will roar through the middle of the country on Wednesday.

Had one helluva storm pass through this morning. Haven't seen wind and rain so hard in a long time. All the rain was horizontal and was blowing sideways in sheets off the walls of my work building. At home
It blew a 8 inch tree limb down right next to my shop and a branch put a two inch hole through the exterior wall. Wifes coworkers have been sending her phone pictures of light to heavy damage they've encountered driving to their homes in area's around the blue rapids area.

In other regional news. Missouri officials say widespread flooding has cost an estimated $29 million in damages to roads and bridges, and dozens of other sites haven’t even been evaluated yet.
Missouri Department of Transportation records presented during a Wednesday commission meeting show the agency has spent more than $12 million on flood-related repairs since March.
