Major Flooding in Doniphan, MO. Police Dept under water.

The area got hit with rain the last few days and it came hard and fast. Building under water. A levee broke in Poplar Bluff. Businesses closed and work cancelled. Designated shelters in place. More rain coming in a couple of days. This is the worst since the 2011 flooding.

It was pretty darn soggy here all weekend, but we missed the worst of it. Sadly, our runoff is headed their way.

I think we got somewhere between 2 and 3 inches with part south of us getting over 3.

all the family in poplar bluff lost their stuff from the flooding. we were gonna go help clear out, but the roads between here and there are closed. we made it through the weekend relatively unscathed but the town next to us has mandatory evacuations in effect. some places don't have power, and it's not expected to be back on until Monday/Tuesday.
lots and lots of water...everywhere.

Not surprised, considering how wet it's been lately! Still nothing like in '93, at least so far!

Sorry to hear that!! Flooding can be very rough. We got hit back in '93, though we didn't lose stuff. Came within a foot f the door, though, and were evacuated for two weeks. Some down the road from us lost everything then! Hope the family is all safe, at least!!

People who live in flood zones usually have a hard time getting flood insurance, imagine that. Plus you have watershed mismanagement on a grand scale, ie. the Army Corp of Engineers and their love of cement.

I love being on the river as much as the next guy, but I worked with a landscaping company that specialized in river bank erosion, so you get what you asked for being on the river. Plus the river goes where it wants to regardless of break walls and other measures. There are plenty of dried out oxbows and old river beds around that shows how the river changes over time. Another consideration, just imagine the damage caused by a failed dam on a big pond versus a normal spring time flooding event. Personally I'd blame the human interference of the watershed for the flooding problems, and the government for encouraging it to happen.
