Default Well we needed the rain, but not this much at one time.

This is the river flow just north of Medford, or to put it another way, 30 miles down from Wm. Jess Dam. 1500 cfs to almost 8,000 in 36 hours. And its still raining ....

Fred: That is a lot of water, but still small compared to the upswing in the rivers that Colorado experienced last fall. The South Platte which is usually pretty small, a few hundred CFS in the late fall went to 25,000 CFS, the people downstream in Kansas felt the full brunt of that rainfall. I can't remember how big the Big T got, but want to say it was several thousand CFS located in a very small tight canyon, lots of folks lost homes along the river there and I think it was like 17 miles of hwy 34 that disappeared.
Hopefully, you guys won't experience anything that bad.

Fred. I remember a flood back in 04...06?? Somewhere around there. I headed down to Tou velle to have a look-see. First obstacle was a small, new river washing across Blackwell road which I foolishly drove thru. When I got to the Tablerock bridge, I chickened out. I didn't dare drive across it. Chocolate milk carrying massive trees rushing toward the bridge which had little to no clearance underneath. I could see the lower parking lot was under water. I remember it pumping something around 33,000 cfs. Looks like youre on your way to that again!
