    Don't feel cheated that you haven't been through one.
    If you see one from a distance, they are one of Mother Nature's most awe-inspiring creations.
    But if you get too close to one, in the words of the great Bernie Mac, "THEY WILL FUCK YOU UP."

    Is that liveshot 15 minuts away, too?

    The flooding caused by all that rain in Oklahoma is pretty insane. The Arkansas River is expected to break previous flood levels by Saturday.

    I-40 is closed at Webbers Falls, Oklahoma, due to barges being loose in the flooding. Corps of Engineers is worried about damage to Lock and Dam 16. Seventeen years ago, a barge took out that bridge and several people died.

    We're a couple of states away, but the barge was owned by a company headquartered in our town. Our news editor was putting the paper to bed around 6 p.m. on Memorial Day, reading over the AP story, and saw that little nugget, to which she infamously exclaimed, "SHIT! THE BARGE IS FROM PODUNK!"
    Amazingly, I think she turned around a localized story -- or at least got enough details to localize the AP story -- within the hour.

    Since this is turning into the weather thread, there's a slow motion disaster happening in the Mississippi Delta. A good chunk of the western quadrant of the state, most of the land between I-20 and U.S. 82, is underwater. It's been that way since about March and is expected to stay that way for most of the summer.
