No doubt 2019 has been a historic year in terms of flooding. Following flooding from the Spring’s snow thaw, repeated rounds of intense rain/thunderstorm events these last few weeks have pushed things to a whole new level. Relentless Spring rain has resulted in record-smashing river levels and widespread, catastrophic flooding. According to the National Weather Service, the flooding along the Mississippi River is the longest-lasting since the “Great Flood” of 1927. Recent rounds of strong to severe thunderstorms that brought tornadoes have also resulted in historic flooding for Oklahoma and Arkansas.
