Wow... Yet another flood this summer....

Are these areas that just don't normally get flooded, or is this more of the same thing they've experienced for a while?

I'm not real sure to tell the truth... but I think it begs looking into...


More extreme weather? Or just more of the same old weather?

Your thoughts?



UPDATE: For those who want to listen in... here are the local scanner feeds... the last one is the local Amateur radio repeater but doesnt seem to be too active..... the first two however do


Upon listening to the first one (Fire and rescue) IT appears that there is also a gas leak now ensuing at the local IHOP...

Wow, I lived on Coronado Drive, a block from where I believe that video to have been filmed, from 2000-2003. We had major storms, but never any issues with flooding.

Living in Edmond taught me to take every storm serious, tornado sirens and "take cover" warnings were a weekly occurrence.

Thanks for the historical account! So it appears that bad storms are a normal occurrence...

Wonder when the last flood was there?

Did the storms get worse over time or were they about the same? THe present one exlcuded of course.

No, it's just Tornado Alley. Whenever there was a bad thunderstorm, you could almost expect a tornado warning or watch to follow. We had a siren in our neighborhood, it sounds like impending nuclear war when they turn them on.
All of my neighbors had underground storm shelters, some were basic, some were fully-stocked bug-out shelters.

I never saw any flooding, but I only lived there 3 years. I'm trying to reach my old neighbor on the phone right now...thanks for posting otherwise I wouldn't have known about it
