Quick Post... Major Flooding!
First off, thanks for the nice comments from the previous post and emails. We really appreciate the kind words. We not only cover severe weather because it is our job, but also because we want people to be safe.
My voice is almost gone, so bear with me today. I'm battling the "crud" like a lot of folks!
We have a serious problem going on in northern Region 8 right now. Here are some of the notes that Bob Snell just passed to me:
-Two missing... Feared dead in Sharp County from flooding
-Over 2 Dozen have been rescued from trees!
-mandatory evacuations for everyone along the Spring River... and the 11 Point River...
-Black River being watched closely!!!
-All RV and campgrounds flooded along rivers.
-Highway 63 has been reopened now, but Highway 58 is flooded and closed.
Please keep these people in your prayers... The water is heading downstream and this problem could spread.
