Shreveport been getting drowned the past couple of days. Our rain percentage has been up and down more than the stock market. Should replace the name weather man with whether man.
I'm amazed that a tree fell behind my house and then a couple minutes later another cracked and fell.
Y'all be safe. Ain't the time to go tromping in the woods or fishing. Even though, I know some will.

Someone sent me a link to an article that says the dam at Toledo Bend is moving and in danger of being topped and/or failing. Is this accurate??? I have looked for something on it but cannot find anything. Supposedly, people that live in Sabine and south of TB are being told to evacuate immediately. I understand that only a small fraction of what is on Facebook is accurate so just looking for confirmation.

JB I have some inlaws over there right now and they say it's flooding where they are staying. Not sure where that is exactly. That heavy storm stayed over the river system from Arkansas all the way to Toledo Bend for a couple days. I can imagine there might be trouble. Let's hope not!

Admiral that's some kinda funny!

Just read that at this time there is no danger of dam failure. Look at the water coming from the dam! :The National Weather Service is predicting major flooding along the Sabine River in Tyler, Newton and Orange Counties.

This morning at 10:15 a.m. the river was at 44.7 feet in Burkeville where flood stage is 43 feet.

The level is expected to reach 53 feet by Friday evening. The record is 48 feet.

At the Toledo Bend dam nine gates are currently opened to 22 feet releasing more than 200,000 cubic feet per second.

There is no danger to the dam at this time according to Ann Galassi at the Sabine River Authority.

She added that Newton County may face a voluntary evacuation shortly.

This morning at 9:15 a.m. the river was at 23.5 feet at Deweyville where flood stage is 24 feet.

The level is expected to reach 29.6 feet by Tuesday morning.

The Weather Service predicts that major flooding could isolate Deweyville and flood homes there

Couldn't have asked for a better time for this rain. The woods are starting to green up and the moisture will provide whitetails with vegetation that is super high in protein. The biggest factor to good horn development is moisture level in the spring. Thank you Mother Nature!!

Deer have antlers. Bovine have horns.
Hopefully no one dies from this antler improving moisture.
This weather proves you can flood anywhere.
