    4 UPDATE: Tornado watches! Crazy rain and flooding + CO Fire

    I've been kind of ignoring the weather the past few days, but it hasn't been good. Did you know the Denver area suffered horrible storms earlier this week?

    It has been raining here in Florida for days and the 10 day forecast is nothing but rain. Thomasville GA just had 6 inches of rain in 1.5 hours.

    Tomorrow through Thurs night is rain forecast for us. Moving in from Fla and the west at the same time. Weatherman said at least 5". Our water table is a little low so I'd welcome it if it were a nice soaking rain and not a gully washer.

    This morning I was thanking the Lord for the rain. This afternoon I am asking Him for relief. Our soil is very sandy but even that cannot handle torrents of heavy, heavy rain in a short period of time. No flooding here at my home, but parts of Escambia and Santa Rosa, FL counties are heavily flooded--over 13" before noon. Still raining. Glad that I do not have to go out. I don't think that Jim Cantore has had time to get here. lol!

    Us folks up here in Maine got just under 7 inches in just a couple days time in this past week. The system just came and got stuck here. I have been watching the national radars and seems like this is happening a lot now. Storms are not moving like they should and they are also coming in from east to west which is not normal.

    Lots of weird weather going on.

    State of emergency declared in Escambia County, Florida; NWS forecasts 12-15 inches of rain through midnight - @pnj

    State of emergency in Escambia

    Editor's note: Please send your flooding photos to online@pnj.com.

    Several areas of Escambia County are being flooded this afternoon, prompting Escambia County officials to declare a state of emerency as of 3 p.m. today.

    Here is the latest news from the county:

    • The National Weather Service is forecasting and additional 12 to 15 inches of rainfall between now and midnight Sunday night. This makes the total projected rain fall for this event between 20 and 30 inches.

    • Residents living in low-lying areas and areas prone to flooding are encouraged to evacuate.

    • Escambia County Emergency Management has activated its Citizen Information Line. Residents can call (850) 471-6600 for information.

    • Residents are requested to stay home and not drive unless absolutely necessary.
    As night falls it will be more difficult to see flooded roads.

    • If you do have to travel, do not attempt to drive across a flooded road. Turn around, don’t drown.

    • Several traffic lights are also out. If you approach a traffic signal that is out it must be treated as a four-way stop. If the signal is flashing the side that is flashing red must yield to traffic.

    • The American Red Cross has opened a shelter for residents affected by today’s flooding conditions. The shelter is at East Brent Baptist Church, 4801 North Davis Highway in Pensacola. Residents should bring along their disaster kits, which include clothing, food and water and necessary supplies for any elderly or babies in the family.

    There are reports of closed intersections throughout the city, including East Hill, intersections of Cervantes Street and at Barrancas Avenue and Main Street in Pensacola.

    Main Street in Pensacola near the Community Maritime Park is closed. A Pensacola police officer is stationed in the area to redirect traffic.

    Jeff Rogers, a Gulf Power spokesman, said there are pockets of relatively small power outages across south Escambia ranging between 10 and 75 houses.

    The company expects most if not all power to be restored sometime this evening.
    In downtown, however, 590 customers are without power, including the Saenger Theater and the Fish House, he said. Gulf Power’s Romana Street substation has taken on water that will have to run out before workers can restore power in downtown.

    Keith Williams, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said that it will rain most of the weekend, with a 90 percent chance today, 80 percent chance tonight and a 70 percent chance tomorrow.

    The National Weather Service has also released a flash flood warning until 8 p.m. today in south central Escambia County.

    “It’s a serious situation, both in Pensacola and Mobile,” Williams said.

    A homeowner near the Saufley Field Landfill said red clay is washing into Elcino Drive, south of Saufley Field Road.

    Williams said that there’s a good possibility that the rain will continue through 7:30 p.m. today.

    This is getting to be like the years a non-tropical system flooded Albany, GA and the surrounding region. I can see that happening with 30 or so inches of rain falling inland like fell that time, but this is flooding right on the coast.

    That's something hard to wrap one's head around. Prayers for all who are going through that deluge.

    Doesn't say how this fire started....

    Wildfire in N. Colorado prompts evacuations
    By The Associated Press

    FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Crews are battling a wildfire in northern Colorado that has scorched at least 200 acres and prompted several dozen evacuation orders.

    Larimer County Sheriff's Office spokesman John Schulz says the fire was reported just before 6 a.m. Saturday in the Paradise Park area about 25 miles northwest of Fort Collins. He says 46 structures have been evacuated, and an evacuation center has been set up at Cache La Poudre Middle School in Laporte.

    A single-engine air tanker, two helicopters and an air attack command plan have been ordered to the scene to help fight the blaze, which is being fueled by gusty winds.

    Meanwhile, KMGH-TV (http://bit.ly/LIFQzA ) in Denver reports a grass fire has destroyed at least four outbuildings near Interstate 25 and Colorado 7 in Erie. Images from the station's helicopter showed at least one car engulfed in flames.

    Tons of pictures for the Wales flooding:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=wale...w=1024&bih=629

    And an article from an hour ago:


    *snip*

    A major rescue is under way at caravan parks in mid Wales after severe flooding.

    Three people have been rescued by helicopter and police estimate 40 people have been taken to safety.

    People are still trapped and numerous caravans are surrounded by flood water at the Riverside Caravan Park in Llandre, near Aberystwyth.

    Another 11 people are awaiting rescue from the nearby Mill House Caravan Park at Dol-y-Bont, also in Llandre.

    Residents in 25 properties have also been evacuated in Talybont, a nearby village hit by severe flooding.

    and here I am in North central Wi and we are burning up! Grass is dead, and it's so dry it's awful! Not normal at all. 90 here today! Wow!

    And I am a Sun freak and it is so hot I can't stand being out for any length of time.

    Not good! I wait all winter to get my bones warmed up and now can't stand being out there more than a couple hours!

    Wind-driven Colorado wildfire prompts dozens of evacuations

    6:40 p.m. CDT, June 9, 2012

    DENVER (Reuters) - A fast-spreading wildfire prompted the evacuations of dozens of homes in northern Colorado on Saturday as virtually the entire state remained under a red-flag warning for fires due to low humidity, high winds and hot temperatures.

    The so-called High Park Fire has blackened between 2,000 and 3,000 acres about 20 miles northwest of Fort Collins, U.S. Forest spokeswoman Reghan Cloudman said. Plumes of black smoke could be seen from the Denver metropolitan area.

    "It's hot, dry and windy, and the fire is very active," Cloudman said.

    Earlier in the day, Larimer County authorities put the number of homes evacuated at 46.

    No buildings have been lost so far although some structures were threatened, Cloudman said.

    Because of a low winter snowpack and a dry spring, most of Colorado is experiencing tinder-dry conditions, the National Weather Service said in an advisory Saturday.

    "The combination of sunny skies ... low humidities and gusty winds will cause critical fire weather conditions," the advisory said.

    The High Park blaze was reported about dawn Saturday and is believed to have started on private land and quickly spread into the Roosevelt National Forest, the forest service said.

    It is the third major wildfire to hit Larimer County this spring in what has already been an active early wildfire season.

    Firefighters are attacking the flames with air tankers and helicopter water drops. The cause of the fire is under investigation, incident commander Dave Mosier said.

    Less than 6 inches in Mobile, but out here at the stateline we have over 12 inches since midnight last night. Several roads washed out, or water flowing 2 to 3 foot over the roads. It has flat rained since yesterday, and still more on the way tonight, tomorrow, and Monday.

    Colorado Wildfire Explodes in Size



    A wildfire burning in the tinder-dry mountains 15 miles east of Ft. Collins, Colo., exploded in size today, growing from just a few acres to 5,000 acres-plus in a matter of hours.

    “It was a tough day,” Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith said. “I’ve been with the agency for 21 years. This is probably the fire we were always concerned we might possibly have.”

    Hundreds of people have been evacuated and at least 10 structures have burned, although it’s not known if they are houses. There are many homes in the fire zone and Smith said there are a unknown number of people unaccounted for.

    “Some people felt fairly confident that there may have been people trapped back there, ” Smith said. “I’m very concerned with some of the reports.”

    Two hundred firefighters are on the scene with more on the way. Five small air tankers, four helicopters and two heavy air tankers are already in the air with two more requested.

    Much of Colorado has been under “red flag” fire weather warnings today, with temperatures higher than 90 degrees.

    The blaze-dubbed the High Park Fire — has already been upgraded to the most serious level, a so-called “Type 1″ incident, meaning a federal command staff will take over strategy for fighting the fire beginning Sunday.

    Structures destroyed, people missing in Colorado wildfire
    ReutersBy Keith Coffman | Reuters – 37 mins ago


    DENVER (Reuters) - An out-of control Colorado wildfire fueled by high winds and hot temperatures left an unknown number of people missing, destroyed 10 structures and prompted evacuations on Saturday, fire officials said.

    By nightfall the so-called High Park Fire had blackened some 5,000 acres in an area northwest of Fort Collins Saturday and was zero percent contained, said fire spokeswoman Jennifer Hillman. She said authorities have been unable to locate or make contact with an unknown number of people who live in the area.

    Authorities ordered the evacuations as winds fanned the flames late in the afternoon.

    Deputies and firefighters went door-to-door telling residents to flee before flames forced them to leave the area, Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith told reporters at an evening briefing.

    One firefighter was hospitalized for heat exhaustion earlier in the day, he said.

    Plumes of smoke could be seen from the Denver metropolitan area.

    "There is a lot of beetle-killed trees up there and it's been a very hot and dry day," Hillman said.

    Because of a low winter snowpack and a dry spring, most of Colorado is experiencing tinder-dry conditions, the National Weather Service said in an advisory Saturday.

    "The combination of sunny skies ... low humidities and gusty winds will cause critical fire weather conditions," the advisory said.

    The High Park blaze was reported about dawn Saturday and is believed to have started on private land and quickly spread into the Roosevelt National Forest, the forest service said.

    It is the third major wildfire to hit Larimer County this spring in what has already been an active early wildfire season.

    Crews were attacking the blaze with air tankers and helicopter water drops, and 200 firefighters are battling the blaze from the ground, the forest service said.

    I'm in the Florida panhandle and we're on flash flood watch until tomorrow afternoon. Our weather forecast for the next 10 days is rain, thunder, thunder showers and scattered thunder storms. Our rainy season is usually April and May. We call it the "monsoon"
    season. But this year April and May was dry and hot. We need the rain our lakes and ponds are really low. Right now you could plant rice on the 10 acres in the front of my property. The local weather said we had less than 1/2 of rain. My weather guage showed 3 inches this morning.
