I toured the flooding of Clay and Randolph County today in the Wood Ford StormTRACKER. The below picture is the water coming over Highway 67. While I always advise people to not drive over a flooded road, the road crew was watching the situation closely and allowed us to cross. A 78-year-old man said that he has never seen the water this high and he has lived there his entire life!
Here's a look at Overlook Park. I ran into Region 8 Weather Watcher, Jason Hampton, while I looked over the flood waters...
As you drive down Highway 67, it looks like a large muddy bay! It was wild. At times, it looks like this on both sides of the road!
The flooding in this area will be the worst we have seen in decades!
