Even if the rain stopped, it would be over a month before we need to water again.

Total crop loss. That's going to be devastating to a lot of farmers. It was bad when we were on the train a few weeks ago; at best then, planting was going to be late. That looks a lot worse than what we saw.

The North Hills of Pittsburgh got hit with storms last night and is dealing today with flooding. I'm in the South Hills and it's supposed to be our turn late this afternoon.

Historic flooding in Midwest breaches levees and threatens communities

https://www.wfmz.com/news/cnn-national/ ... 1082452055
The Dardanelle Levee on the Arkansas River breached, with water moving quickly early Friday, said Meteorologist Jeff Hood of the National Weather Service in Little Rock.

:snippity:

"We think the levee may breach and completely collapse within itself and then we will have a wide-open hole there of water ... I believe it could be soon," Thone told the station.

:snippity:

A levee failure on the Mississippi River has caused a mandatory evacuation of residents in West Quincy, Missouri, the Marion County Sheriff's Office told CNN.

:snippity:

The Army Corps of Engineers New Orleans district announced that while it will be later than expected, they plan to operate the Morganza Floodway on June 9.

I haven't heard anything about this in the news here. I learned about it on FB feeds on Jasper National Park.

https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather- ... s/70008423
Several wildfires are raging across Alberta, a western province in Canada, spewing large amounts of smoke into the atmosphere and shrouding Canadian cities, such as Calgary and Edmonton, and even sending smoke billowing into the northern United States airspace.

While there are several fires burning throughout the province, three major fires burning in the northern half of the province are the main focus.

The Chuckegg Creek wildfire is out of control and located about 3 miles (5 kilometers) south of the town of High Level, Alberta. This particular fire is about three times the size of the city of Edmonton, according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson.

Officials estimate that about 10,000 people have been forced to evacuate in and around High Level as a result of the blaze.
