Looks like San Angelo's OC Fisher is catching some much needed water. The Conch river as it flows over FM2288 into FM2288.

On yesterday's San Angelo Live site, they said that Red Arroyo claimed a few more flood victims. Here are 2 pics.

One of the news reports.
Quote:
This morning, the NWS reported that the Concho River at Bell St. is flowing at the highest rate in the history of recording it—in about 75 years. At Carlsbad, Texas, northwest of San Angelo, the North Concho River is expected to crest at 20 feet sometime this morning. The Middle Concho River near Tankersley, southwest of San Angelo, is also flooding and expected to crest sometime this morning too.

We drove down to the Red Arroyo one day to watch the flash flood come through. All the rain had missed San Angelo but the news was reporting a flash flood warning and said the Arroyo was expected to rise over 4' within the next 30 minutes. The head wall was pretty impressive to see. Went from nothing to roaring and back to flowing in a matter of minutes.

Not sure about now, but that town is not designed to handle heavy rain. Everything floods.

Most of the larger towns from Abilene and on west ere designed for any big rains, an inch or more and they almost all have some sort of flooding issue. We have streets that turn into rivers with an inch of rain, so does Midland and Odessa. When they were small towns the runoff was minimal but as they grew the runoff increased too much for the natural drainage to handle.

Grew up in Midland in 60's and 70's. Even back then when it was a fairly small town they had designed large concrete flood control ditches across town to handle heavy rains and flash floods. Even with that, Wadley street would actually become a river.

DC, you need to go out there and loosen the log jamb on the rail grin I'm betting there is a lot of folks that will tolerate the mud, in exchange for some moisture though.

I have it on good authority that about an inch of rain will float a tube down A&M in the college hills neighborhood all the way from Johnson street to the arroyo
