Gasconade River Record Levels At Jerome

Recommended Posts

Looks like there's a new flood record according to the Jerome gauge. Shut down I-44 in both directions at the Little Piney.

Yeah, this is a big one. Until last nights deluge we still had good water on Meramec, now it appears the whole southern half of the state is blown out.

Just watched the weather at noon, rain to to the south tonight, but a possibilty of 6 more inches for thursday night into friday for loz, waynesville, and rolla area. I can recall when the west bound lane was closed down in 08. Loz is bank full with flood gates and gasconade at record levels dumping into the missouri river downstream of jeff city. Not looking good.

We got 7 inches nite before last, and 6 inches last nite ( thats 8 inches and 6 inches in my basement ) , and our gravel road washed out the worst i have seen in 40 years.

My heating and cooling guy said he saw water in Waynesville , in places he had never seen in his life.

Jerome set a record at 32+.

Sad to see this especially for those who live close by and have been affected. Whats really scary is that I don't think they predicted this much rain,

so nobody knew it was coming to the degree it did.

Boy, I've never seen so many pipe culverts laying exposed on these dirt roads around here... this is scary bad flooding, and I'm afraid it ain't over yet. The rain has been unreal here in Richland. I just drove out to visit a friend who lives near a creek, and it took me almost an hour to travel the 15 miles both ways to his house because of the road damage and low water crossings. Unreal.
