Record Setting Flooding In The Heartland: “The Mississippi River Has Been At Major Flood Stage For 41 Days And Counting”

Thousands of farmers in the Midwest have been waiting for a very long time for floodwaters to recede so that they can finally plant some crops, but instead more rain just keeps on coming. As you will see below, it is being reported that the Mississippi River has now been at major flood stage for 41 days in a row, and a lot more rain is coming this week. Meteorologists are warning us that major flooding may extend into June, and that means that many farmers will not be able to plant crops at all this year. Unfortunately, as global weather patterns continue to shift many believe that what we are witnessing this year may become the “new normal” along the Mississippi River.

In response to my previous articles about the devastating flooding in the heartland, a few skeptics have tried to downplay the seriousness of the situation by claiming that at least the flooding along the Mississippi is not as bad as it was in 1993.

Well, that is no longer true in many areas. The following comes from USA Today…

The Mississippi River crested at higher levels than it ever had in the past. That was at 22.7 feet in Davenport, Iowa, on Thursday, a record that hadn’t been matched since records began to be kept in 1862, said Loveland. That is almost eight feet above flood stage.

In Rock Island, Illinois, the Mississippi set a record level of 22.7 feet, breaking the record set on July 9, 1993, during the Great Flood of 1993.

And according to NPR, the Mississippi has now been at major flood stage for 41 days in a row…

The Mississippi River has been at major flood stage for 41 days and counting, and this week a temporary wall failed, sending water rushing into several blocks of downtown Davenport, Iowa.

I know that many Americans that live on the east and west coasts don’t really care about what goes on in the middle of the country, but this is a truly historic disaster.

At this point the flooding is so bad that authorities have actually decided to close the Mississippi River to all vessel traffic at St. Louis…

As of Friday afternoon, the Mississippi River was closed to all vessel traffic at St. Louis. The U.S. Coast Guard shut down the river for a five-mile stretch, citing not only the extremely high water but also the swift current.

The river is already more than 8 feet above flood stage at St. Louis and expected to rise another 4 feet by Monday.

Closure of river traffic at one of the largest cities on the Mississippi is a huge blow for commerce since many goods are shipped on barges up and down the river.

This is yet another huge blow to a U.S. economy that is rapidly going in the wrong direction.

And guess what?

Meteorologists are telling us that a lot more rain is in the forecast for the region this week…

The already-drenched residents of the middle part of the country are advised to keep their rain gear handy. Showers, thunderstorms and flooding will be a fact of life again for much of this week.

A cold front moving in from the north through the Plains and Midwest will clash with moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, leading to persistent precipitation over large swaths that are already saturated by runoff from the unusually heavy snow in the winter, forecasters said Sunday.

Of course the Midwest definitely doesn’t need any more rain. At this point, Iowa has already received more precipitation during the last 12 months than any other “recorded period in 124 years of data”…

The upper Mississippi was inundated with massive amounts of rain earlier this week, exacerbating the already high river level. “The state of Iowa has received more precipitation in the last 12 months than any recorded period in 124 years of data,” Bob Gallagher, the mayor of the upriver town of Bettendorf, told reporters Friday. “When you get as much rain as we have this year there’s just no way to avoid this situation.”

We are being told that major flooding along the Mississippi River will last into June, and it could potentially go even longer than that.

Billions upon billions of dollars worth of damage has already been done, and the total is going up with each passing day.

Millions of acres of farmland along the major rivers in the middle of the country will not be usable at all this year, and that means that crop production will be well below initial projections.

Food prices are already at painful levels, and family budgets are going to get squeezed tighter and tighter as food prices move up aggressively in the months ahead. And for those living right on the edge, some very tough choices are going to have to be made. The following comes from U.S. News & World Report…

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, some 40 million people in the U.S. were food-insecure in 2017, meaning they lacked consistent access to enough food for an active and healthy life.

The truth is that the U.S. is far more vulnerable to a “food shock” than most people would dare to imagine. And as our planet continues to become more unstable, our vulnerability is only going to increase.

The food that we eat does not magically appear on our plates somehow. People have to work extremely hard to produce it for us, and right now the heartland of our nation is being absolutely devastated by record setting flooding.

For now, many Americans don’t seem to appreciate the seriousness of this crisis, but as food prices continue to escalate there will definitely be plenty of complaining in the months ahead.

Video: Collapse of Oroville Dam Has Become a Distinct Possibility

The Oroville Dam is in crisis. In the past several weeks, I have spoken to Paul Preston multiple times about the continuing crisis. This morning, April 18, 2019, Preston is in court attempting to file an injunction against the Department of Water Resources.of California. Consequently, Preston is not able to speak with me on this topic. However, I do have access to other sources and I have obtained direct evidence which strongly indicates that the Oroville Dam is in imminent danger. Here is what we know as the early morning hours on April 18, 2019.
Within the Past Six Days the Dam Has Begun Periodic Over-topping

The Oroville Dam is the biggest earthen dam in the United States, standing at a height of 901 feet. The dam is experiencing threats to its existence from a number of sources. Here was a recent story which indicated that over-topping was a looming threat. This alone, could collapse the dam.

From Agenda 21 Radio:

NewCali News

Many New Californians in the Butte, Sutter and Yuba counties have expressed great concern over what they have been seeing error codes from the Oroville dam data exchange center’s hourly charts from the Department of Water Resources.  The error codes (N) started showing  up on the charts April 12, 2019 at 3:00 pm PST. when the last reported elevation of the water in the reservoir was at 860.83 feet.  By 4:00 pm PST the elevation was reported at 533.22 a drop of 327 feet in the water level.  Noted alongside the measurement is letter (N) which indicates there is an error in the reporting.

Of big concern for people was after 44 hours without a proper reading from the Oroville Dam what was the real level of the reservoir since the last reading that was produced without an error code (N) was Friday April 12, 2019 at 3:00 pm PST that report showed an elv. at 860.83 ft

As of Sunday at 12:00 pm pst 44 hours after the error code showed there was only minimal data that could be used such as the inches per hour which was not reliable but the Inflows were 19,559 vs Out flows of 8,002 at 12:00 pm PST April 14, 2019 with the main spillway is NOT in use.

“We don’t know the levels.  What are the exact numbers?” stated one Butte County resident.

The dam max reservoir is 899.9. Over topping starts at 901 many people were thinking there was an over topping threat as they saw on February 11, 2017.  The February 11, 2017 incident was the led to the February 12 dam failure that forced the Sheriff to call for an emergency evacuation of 190,000 people from the inundation zone.

From Bad to Worse

Noted dam expert, Scott Cahill’s material on the Oroville Dam’s condition was forwarded to me. Here is what I have at this point in time..

On the right side of the spillway the plates are leaking.  There should be NO water leaking from the seams.

The leaks are obvious in all IMG pictures. Spillway is suppose to be smooth.  Evidence in all IMG pictures. Notable plate buckling in IMG 8027b, IMG 8026B, IMG 8025b and IMG 8034  From Dam specialist Scott Cahill Watershed Services. I am being sent these photos later today. I am not sure about the delay in doing so and they will be published  as soon as they are received. I suspect that the early is due to the fact that that photos are going to be used in court this morning in order to gain an injunctions against the Department of Water Resources who are using dynamite in the vicinity of the dam in order clear debris. The fear among local experts is that the dynamite could trigger a catastrophic collapse of the dam. This constitutes the main legal argument against DWS in court as per the filed documents. 

Eyewitnesses have told me that the spillway is collapsing. There is buckling in the middle of the dam. It is estimated that if the top of the dam fails, the dam will lose about 30-40% of its height. This would lead to massive over-topping of the 600 feet that would be left and eventually it is expected that the dam would collapse. 

ADDENDUM TO THE ARTICLE 9AM Pacific April 18, 2019

These pictures originated with Scott Cahill. These photos show clear cracks and damage to the spillway, mentioned earlier in the article. Once can see the bulges forming as well. This dam is a critical state.


What Happens If the Dam Collapses?

The experts I speak with tell me, that in the event of a dam collapse, the water will come rushing out at 75 MPH. The water will be 30 feet high. Sacramento would be under water in less than hour. DWS says it would take two hours for the water to reach Sacramento. The point is largely irrelevant. The city could not be successfully evacuated within two hours. Almost two million lives are at risk.

If the dam collapses, the CALEXIT people will realize their goal of eliminating California’s contribution to the nation’s agricultural and world’s supply of food. The affected Central Valley is one of the top suppliers of fruits, nuts and vegetables in the world. Spot famines would result. Further 30% of America’s retail crosses Interstate 15 and that would be stopped immediately and this at a time when the retail collapse of America is already underway with the closing of 6,000 stores in the first quarter of 2019. This event could collapse our economy. And I want to stress that is a preliminary report. I have prepared a summary report below in the following. I will be publishing photos as they arrive and are converted in a publishable format. Open the Video

A “perfect storm” of events is now building toward a cascading collapse of mammoth U.S. dams that will displace millions and destroy entire towns

Dams do their job every day with little fanfare, but when one breaks, the results can be devastating. Imagine entire towns being completely washed away and millions of people losing everything they own and being displaced. It sounds like something out of a big-budget Hollywood doomsday film, but for the millions of people who live near dams, the danger is all too real.

In fact, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has forecast that two thirds of the 48 contiguous states will be facing a heightened flood risk until May. They predict that there could be “unprecedented” levels of flooding throughout the nation that will put 200 million people in danger.

Some of the areas identified as being at the greatest risk include communities near the Mississippi River, where rain and snow levels have been as much as 200 percent above normal, along with the Great Lakes, the Ohio river basin, and the Tennessee river basin.

NOAA National Water Center Director Ed Clark commented: “The extensive flooding we’ve seen in the past two weeks will continue through May and become more dire and may be exacerbated in the coming weeks as the water flows downstream.”

A combination of rapid snow melt and heavy rainfall inundating the Midwest and plains is fueling the floods, with torrents of rainfall failing to penetrate frozen ground, forcing water to swell rivers and break their banks. As the spring rains continue and snow melts, the flood threat will only be exacerbated.

Flooding has already caused almost $1.5 billion worth of damage in Nebraska, leaving four people dead and one missing. It has damaged hundreds of Midwestern homes so far, and is also being blamed for a handful of deaths in Nebraska and Idaho. Flooding has caused trains to be stopped in Missouri, preventing people and goods from reaching their destinations, and it’s also affecting agriculture significantly, threatening grain stockpiles and killing livestock as tens of thousands of acres get absolutely inundated.

Coastal areas are also being hit by flooding, with NOAA predicting that both the east and west coasts of the nation will experience a greater chance than normal of spring flooding due to high tides.
Nation’s dams not ready to handle all this flooding

Unfortunately, many of America’s dams just aren’t up to the task of handling epic rainfall. Look at what happened with the Oroville Dam in California, which nearly blew out after damage from record-setting rains, threatening to propel a 30-foot wall of water toward Sacramento and everything in its path. The state ultimately had to evacuate 188,000 people in three counties.

Meanwhile, the Fort Peck Dam in Montana is also causing concerns as the upcoming snow melt is coinciding with the Yellowstone Caldera’s seismic activity.

In their Report Card for America’s Infrastructure, the American Society of Civil Engineers said that 15,500 American dams have high-hazard potential, which means that if they fail, it could lead to a catastrophic loss of life. A further 11,882 dams have a “significant hazard potential,” which means a failure might not necessarily cause massive deaths but could cause significant financial losses.

It’s pretty scary to think of how easily a dam can break and how quickly that could wreak massive amounts of havoc and destruction. And what happens when this kind of flooding hits a nuclear reactor? Aging infrastructure and unprecedented rain mean we could be hit by a disaster of epic proportions.

Video: NOAA Warns Unprecedented Flooding In USA Could Last Until July, 200 Million People At Risk

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration warned that “historic, widespread flooding” would “continue through July”. More than 90 percent of the upper Midwest and Great Plains is currently covered by an average of 10.7 inches of snow, and all of that snow is starting to melt.

That means that we are going to transition from one of the worst winters in modern history to a flood season that has already taken an apocalyptic turn for farmers all across America.

And this would be a complete and utter national nightmare even if the flooding was all over, but the NOAA just told us that we should expect more catastrophic flooding for the next three-four months (until July). In fact, the NOAA is using the words “unprecedented flood season” to describe what is coming, and they are warning that “more than 200 million people” are at risk…

Video: Uninsured Farmers Face Existential Crisis As Floods Destroy 100s Of Millions Of Dollars In Crops

Our ongoing trade war with China had greatly depressed prices for wheat, corn and soybeans, and so farmers were storing more crops on their farms than ever before in early 2019. And then the floods came.

The water moved so fast that the vast majority of the farmers in the affected areas could not have moved what they had stored even if they wanted to, and the scale of the losses that these farmers have suffered is starting to become clearer. Open the Video

Video: Dems Kill Bill To Help Midwest Flood Recovery, Trashes American Farmers- Trump Brutally Rips Them Apart

Open the Video The party of hate is at it again. They literally refused to pass a bill that would provide extremely vital funds to help the people in the Midwest and California, (believe it or not) and the reason is ridiculous as usual.

The dems are bitching about the mere $610 million allotted for Puerto Rico was not enough, Bloomberg reported. Puerto Rico’s officials are totally incompetent as well as totally corrupt.

Trending: Secret Service On High Alert Senate Democrats blocked a $13.5 billion Republican disaster aid bill, contending it lacks enough aid for Puerto Rico, leaving the Senate without an immediate path forward to provide relief for areas hit by recent Midwest floods, Hurricanes Florence and Michael, and California wildfires.

The aid package, amended last week by Republican Richard Shelby of Alabama, would give Puerto Rico $600 million in nutrition assistance, but it doesn’t contain the same funds the House authorized to bolster flood protection and repair the electrical grid.

The Senate failed to advance its version of the bill Monday on a 44-49 vote. Senators then voted on the House version, which was blocked by Republicans on a 46-48 vote. Second-ranking Senate Republican John Thune said he expects Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer “will sit down and try to figure out a path forward.”

Republicans say the aid package should be confined to 2018 and 2019 disasters while leaving recovery for Hurricane Maria that hit Puerto Rico in 2017 to be sorted out another time. Given President Donald Trump’s opposition to any more aid for the island, Republicans say the $600 million for nutrition already represents a compromise.

Midwest Apocalypse: 1 Million Acres Of U.S. Farmland Devastated By Floods

We have never seen anything like this before. According to satellite data that was just released by Reuters, “at least 1 million acres of U.S. farmland” were covered by water for at least seven days this month. That is an agricultural disaster without equal in modern American history, and yet the mainstream media is treating this like it is some sort of second class story. It isn’t.

This is the biggest news story of 2019 so far, and people want to know what is going on. A few days ago, I posted a story entitled ‘”As Many As A Million Calves Lost In Nebraska” – Beef Prices In The U.S. To Escalate Dramatically In The Coming Months’, and it has already been shared on social media more than 145,000 times.

Farming communities all over the central part of the nation now look like war zones as a result of all this flooding, but the media elites on the east and west coasts don’t want to write about it. And with more flooding on the way for the next two months, this crisis is only going to get worse.

This is the time of year when farmers are gearing up to plant wheat, corn and soybeans, and now a substantial portion of our farmland will not be able to be used at all this year. According to Reuters, at least a million acres of farmland were covered by floodwaters for at least seven days this month, and that “will likely reduce corn, wheat and soy production this year”…

At least 1 million acres (405,000 hectares) of U.S. farmland were flooded after the “bomb cyclone” storm left wide swaths of nine major grain producing states under water this month, satellite data analyzed by Gro Intelligence for Reuters showed.

Farms from the Dakotas to Missouri and beyond have been under water for a week or more, possibly impeding planting and damaging soil. The floods, which came just weeks before planting season starts in the Midwest, will likely reduce corn, wheat and soy production this year.

And with “as many as a million calves” lost to the flooding, a lot less food than anticipated is going to be produced in the United States for the foreseeable future.

Between March 8th and March 21st, almost 1.1 million acres of cropland and over 84,000 acres of pastureland were covered by water for at least a week. With more rain on the way, it is essentially going to be impossible for most of those acres to be usable this year.

In Iowa, 474,271 acres were covered by floodwaters for at least seven days in March, and Iowa farmers are facing some very tough deadlines. Corn must be planted by May 31st and soybeans must be planted by June 15th in order to qualify for flood insurance. For most Iowa farms that were covered by floodwaters, that is going to be impossible.

Overall, the recent flooding caused “at least $3 billion” in economic damage according to authorities, but many believe that the final number will be far higher.

Thousands upon thousands of farms have been completely destroyed, and thousands upon thousands of farmers will not plant any crops at all this year.

In addition to the vast agricultural devastation that we have witnessed, thousands upon thousands of homes have been destroyed as well, and now the National Ground Water Association is warning that “the safety of more than a million private water wells” could be compromised…

Record flooding in the Midwest is now threatening the safety of more than a million private water wells. The National Ground Water Association estimates that people living in more than 300 counties across 10 states have their groundwater threatened from bacterial and industrial contamination carried by flood waters.

If you live in the middle of the country and there is a chance that your well may have been compromised, please don’t take any unnecessary chances. Contaminated water can be really, really bad news.

Unfortunately, this is just the beginning. According to the NOAA, we are entering an “unprecedented flood season” that could potentially “impact an even bigger area of cropland”…

Spring floods could yet impact an even bigger area of cropland. The U.S. government’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has warned of what could be an “unprecedented flood season” as it forecasts heavy spring rains. Rivers may swell further as a deep snow pack in northern growing areas melts.

In my previous article entitled ‘”200 Million People At Risk: National Weather Service Warns Apocalyptic Midwest Floods Are “A Preview Of What We Expect Throughout The Rest Of The Spring”‘, I included a map from the NOAA which shows which areas of the central part of the country are projected to receive unusually high levels of rainfall over the next few months.

Unfortunately, there is a tremendous amount of overlap with areas that have already been devastated by flooding.

On Friday and Saturday, there will be “more heavy rains” in the Midwest, and Nebraska is in “the direct path” of the center of the storm…

From the Central Plains to the Midwest, it has been a disastrous spring for river flooding. A weather system slated to bring more heavy rains Friday into Saturday could aggravate the situation along and near the Missouri and Mississippi rivers.

It’s a one-two punch that combines additional rainwater with fresh runoff from snowmelt. Perhaps worst off is Nebraska, in the direct path of Friday’s quick burst of moisture. Barely a week has passed since Gov. Pete Ricketts estimated the cost of ongoing flooding in that state at more than $1 billion.

This is it. America is being hammered by one storm after another, and I very much encourage you to get prepared for a very rough ride ahead.

There is going to be a lot more flooding. Prices for beef, dairy, wheat, corn and soy products are going to rise significantly, and just when you think they are way too high they are going to keep on rising.

This is already the worst agricultural disaster in modern American history, and federal authorities are telling us that we should expect things to continue to get worse for at least two more months.

Perhaps the mainstream media will eventually decide to take this story seriously, but until they do those of us in the alternative media will do our best to keep you updated.
