    Flooding Spots Worldwide spring 2013


    May's San Antonio floods cause more than a million dollars in damages, one assessment of the Mission Reach area of San Antonio reveals.   From the Alamo City Beat on June 5, 2013.http://www.bizjournals.com/sanantonio/blog/2013/06/san-antonio-flood-causes-more-than-1.html?page=all

    Lourdes' (France) basilica still inundated with 10 feet of water.  http://www.thv11.com/news/article/268921/288/Flood-damage-at-Pius-X-Basilica-   A video report surveys the damage to the basilica which holds 20000 people.  The area is hard hit with the flooding which has damaged local crops, and is resulting in grape vine damage in the wine-making area.

    Calgary Alberta Canada remains under several feet of water and the city has been evacuated in many sections due to severe flooding.  The floods hit fast since the ground had already reached saturation and there was no where for the water to go.  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/story/2013/06/21/f-alberta-floods.html


    Alton Illinois took a major hit in late May 2013 when the levee broke that was holding back the Mississippi river.   Last year spent in drought when the waterway could not be navigated in spots due to low water, this year the river has overtopped flood sandbagging in many locales.  http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/06/04/flooding-mississippi-missouri-west-alton/2388519/

    thousands in German towns were forced to evacuate as the Elbe river at flood stage broke through a dam in Eastern Germany in early June.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/09/german-floods-force-thousands-to-evacuate_n_3411694.html

    Vermont's Chittenden County was hard-hit by flash floods on May 23rd when over 30 roads had to be closed on May 24th in the aftermath of severe flood brought on by a rainstorm with heavy rain totals/

    NBC Video gives a Bird's Eye view of the toll exacted by Flooding in Oklahoma after the severe storm system on May 29 - June 1 left the worst damage in years from the aftereffects of the heavy rain that accompanied the damaging storms.  http://www.nbcnews.com/video/nbc-news/52067899#52067899

    Hi beejean.  My German pen-pal told me that the weather in Germany has been very unusual.  I mentioned the tornadoes we had this year and he sent me this video of an F3 that formed and caused damage in Germany, but I believe that was a couple years ago?

    But yes, the flooding has been a sight to see this year, around the world.  


    This website isn't working for me atm, but it's:  http://www.floodmap.net/

    Here is another one from NASA.  You'll have to click on the grid for a close up map of locations currently flooding: http://oas.gsfc.nasa.gov/floodmap/

    Hi DearWife,

    The German flooding has been a major destroyer of property and roads near Munich:
    roads through Tirol, Salzburg, Oberostirreich.

    Wisconsin floods are reported on by the Associated Press:

    Green Bay Press Gazette - An Article by AP writers dated June 25, 2013 wrote:"A landslide on U.S. 61 in Crawford County buried the road in mud 25 feet high and 200 yards long, according to the Wisconsin Emergency Operations Center. The agency said it hasn’t received any reports of injuries, but the slide closed the highway between Wisconsin 60 and the bridge to Boscobel.
    Mudslides and debris have also closed Wisconsin 35 from Lynxville to Prairie du Chien, while flooding closed Wisconsin 171 from Wisconsin 27 to Wisconsin 131 west of Gays Mills.
    State emergency officials said Tuesday that a boulder fell onto Wisconsin 56 near Genoa, though traffic was able to maneuver around it.
    The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for Crawford, Grant, Vernon, Kenosha, Lafayette, Green and Rock counties."
