'Unprecedented' Summerlong Flood Threatens Missouri River Dams and Levees
By LAUREN MORELLO of ClimateWire
Published: June 7, 2011

Record snowpack and heavy rains have filled Missouri River reservoirs to the brim, and federal officials say their only option now is to release massive amounts of water.

The resulting flooding could last along the river until mid-August, they said, threatening communities stretching from Montana to Missouri.

"There are some extremely high water levels that will persist for quite a period of time," said Lynn Maximuk, director of the National Weather Service's central region. "The rises along the Missouri have been caused by really a year's worth of rainfall across the basin over the last two weeks. In addition, snowfall in the mountains is at about 140 percent of normal."

That has created "unprecedented" runoff that federal officials say can no longer be contained within the six dams built to tame the Missouri's flows.

The Army Corps of Engineers is planning to release record amounts of water at all six dams, said Kevin Grode, Missouri Basin Reservoir Regulation Team leader for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Yes, with farmland being flooded for the entire summer the farmers can kiss this growing season goodbye and there will be food shortages during the winter months. I agree, stock up now and also grow your own food to stock up if possible. It's going to get rough.

BISMARCK, ND – The US Army Corps of Engineers reported this morning that the peek release of 150,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) for the 5 lower dams, including Garrison Dam, is certain. The flows will continue through at least mid-August.

Currently, waters from Garrison dam are at being released at a rate of 118,300 cfs, which will be increased to a rate of 130,000 today. Scheduled increased releases from Garrison are currently as follows: 135,000 cfs on Friday, June 10; 140,000 cfs on June 15; 145,000 cfs on June 16; and the peek flow of 150,000 on Friday, June 17.

The six dams along the Missouri River are operated solely by the Army Corps of Engineers under federal authority. Although the Corps does work to keep the Governor and National Guard informed, the state has no power to determine the level and scheduling of releases.

Officials offer mixed messages on flooding

Emergency planners will have their eyes on Buffalo County in the coming days.

Region 5/6 Emergency Manager Bill Pook said the impact on Dodge and Saunders counties of water coming down the Platte River will first be seen in the Buffalo County area, about two days before it gets to Dodge County.

Pook warned this week that increased releases of water into the Platte River are planned from Kinglsey Dam and Lake McConaughy north of North Platte.

"The bottom line for all the people on the Saunders County side and the Dodge County side," Pook told the Tribune, "is it's not a matter of if it will flood, we will have flooding on the Platte River this summer."

The remaining question, he said, is how extensive the flooding will be.

"Our big question to the state is how we are going to be able to judge the affect of that increase, what does it mean to our citizens that live along the river," Pook said. "That (information) we don't have.

"From North Platte down into Buffalo County the Platte River is so spread out and the land is so flat that they don't know how much of that is going to be absorbed in that area versus coming downstream," he said. "When the high waters reach Buffalo County, that's when the state of Nebraska and the Army Corps of Engineers is going to start to take measurements to try to see what the affect will be for us downstream."

OPPD issues Notification of Unusual Event for Ft. Calhoun nuclear plant
http://www.publicbroadcasting.net/kios/news.newsmain/article/0/0/1812305/Omaha.Public.Radio.News/OPPD.issues.Notification.of.Unusual.Event.for.Ft..Calhoun.nuclear.plant
Katie Knapp Schubert (2011-06-06)

OMAHA, NE (kios) - Rising Missouri River flood water has forced OPPD to declare a Notification of Unusual Event at its Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant.

OPPD made the announcement in a news release this afternoon. Such notifications are made when events are happening or have happened that will impact the plant. In the news release, OPPD says the river is expected to rise to 1,004 feet above sea level this week and remain there for at least a month.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission, NEMA, and Iowa emergency management officials have been notified. OPPD says the plant is currently shut down for refueling and they don't expect any radioactive material to be released.

The Missouri River is two feet above flood stage in Washington County, and rising.

Tuesday, June 07 2011
(Sullivan, MO) -- The U.S. Geological Survey says a 4.2 magnitude earthquake hit 14 miles east southeast from Sullivan, Missouri at 3:10 am Tuesday.

The quake happened 3.2 miles below ground, according to the U.S.G.S., and was centered in rural Washington County, Missouri, east southeast of Sullivan.

St. Louis television station KTVI reports police in Sullivan, Missouri received many phone calls after the shaking, but no injuries or damage were reported.

The epicenter was less than 15 miles from the Sullivan exit from Interstate 44.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Calhoun_Nuclear_Generating_Station#cite_note-ler-5

A flood assessment performed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 2010 indicated that the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Generating Station, "did not have adequate procedures to protect the intake structure and auxiliary building against external flooding events."

The assessment also indicated that the facility was not adequately prepared for a "worst-case" flooding scenario.

A number of potential flood water penetration points were discovered that could have impacted the raw feed water supply to the cooling system, the auxiliary water supply and main switchgear (electrical) room.

Must be that Japan's on-going, radiation-of-Americans incident wasn't enough?   Seems the agenda is to radiate to death everyone asap.  If not through TSA radiation chambers aka bodyscanners -- it is through nukes.

These insane psychopaths on all fronts, need to be arrested immediately -- all of them.  Seize their assets, sort it out later.

Fort Calhoun's Nuclear Plant Under Scrutiny
Federal Regulators Want Nuclear Plant Prepared To Handle Major Emergencies

http://www.ketv.com/r/27392766/detail.html

OMAHA, Neb. -- Fort Calhoun's nuclear power plant is one of three reactors across the country that federal regulators said they are most concerned about.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials said Fort Calhoun's reactor is operating safely, but it's still on the shortlist because they want to make sure it's prepared to handle major emergencies, like flooding.

Last year, federal regulators questioned the station's flood protection protocol. NRC officials said they felt the Omaha Public Power District should do more than sandbagging in the event of major flooding along the Missouri river.

Fire Reported at Ft. Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant
http://www.action3news.com/story/14858546/electrical-fire-reported-at-ft-calhoun-nuclear-power-plant
Posted: Jun 07, 2011 12:01 PM Updated: Jun 07, 2011 12:36 PM

Ft. Calhoun, NE- Just before 10 Tuesday morning, officials at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power plant noticed a small fire in a switch gear room.

The fire was contained to an electrical panel. Although it did create quite a bit of smoke, the fire was quickly put out.

Washington County officials say no one was evacuated and there are no safety threats due to the fire. They couldn't say if flooding caused the fire.

Fort Calhoun is currently off-line for refueling. Sandbagging and other precautions continue to protect the plant.  Monday, OPPD notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission of a low-level emergency, called Notification of Unusual Event.

Record Missouri River floods keep getting worse
Mark Guarino | The Christian Science Monitor | Jun 07, 2011

Heavy flooding along the Missouri River will last throughout the summer, predict federal officials. The surging waters, created by unprecedented weather conditions, have already caused levee failures, and more are expected to come.

The Missouri River and its tributaries in Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota are swelling with water. A confluence of factors are driving the rising waters, notably the record heavy snowfall earlier this year in the Rocky Mountain region. Snow accumulation was 140 percent above normal, says Lynn Maximuk, director of the National Weather Service in the central region.

“We do have quite an unusual set of circumstances, meteorologically,” Mr. Maximuk told reporters Monday afternoon.

The unusually heavy snows – combined with ongoing heavy rains, expected to continue all summer – will create a total runoff of some 55 million acre-feet of water, according to projections from the US Army Corps of Engineers. (An acre-foot of water is the equivalent of one foot of water covering one acre of land.)

That’s the highest runoff level since they began keeping records in 1898.

The immediate danger this week comes from heavy storms, expected to move south along the river valley. Meteorologists predict that 2 inches of rain in Montana and North Dakota and up to 3 inches of rain in Omaha, Neb., will fall over the next few days, Maximuk says.

May was the second-wettest month for northern Wyoming, Montana, and North Dakota since 1889.

To relieve pressure on the river, the Corps plans to release 150,000 cubic feet per second of water at the Oahe Dam above Pierre, S.D., on Tuesday. The other dams will be opened in succession, remaining open through mid-August.

The NASA NAZIs already got the cover story ready...


NASA NAZI's say: Sun Unleashes 'Spectacular' & Powerful Eruption
http://www.space.com/11893-huge-sun-eruption-spectacular-solar-flare.html
by Tariq Malik, SPACE.com Managing Editor
Date: 07 June 2011 Time: 02:21 PM ET

The sun unleashed a massive solar storm today (June 7) in a dazzling eruption that kicked up a vast cloud of magnetic plasma that appeared to rain back down over half of the sun's entire surface, NASA scientists say. The solar storm hit its peak at about 2:41 a.m. EDT (0641 GMT), but the actual flare extended over a three-hour period, said C. Alex Young, a solar astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center who runs a website called The Sun Today, in a video describing the event. "The sun produced a quite spectacular prominence eruption that had a solar flare and high-energy particles associated with it, but I've just never seen material released like this before," Young said. "It looks like somebody just kicked a giant clod of dirt into the air and then it fell back down." NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft caught high-definition video of the flare in different wavelengths. The event registered as a Class M-2 solar flare, which is a medium-class sun storm that should not pose a danger to satellites or infrastructure on Earth. An alert by the NOAA-operated Space Weather Prediction Center stated that the solar flare could create a strong geomagnetic storm on Wednesday (June 9) from the event's coronal mass ejection (CME), an explosion of charged particles triggered by the flare. Geomagnetic storms can lead to stronger than normal displays of Earth's auroras, also known as the northern and southern lights. "It's nothing we really have to worry about," Young said in his video. "It's just really, really beautiful." The coronal mass ejection is directed at Earth and moving at about 3.1 million mph (5 million kph), SDO mission scientists said in a statement. "Due to its angle, however, effects on Earth should be fairly small. Nevertheless, it may generate space weather effects here on Earth in a few days," they added. In the SDO videos, the solar flare erupts from the lower right of the sun and triggers the intense coronal mass ejection, which blows plasma and particles high up into the sun's corona — its outer atmosphere — with some raining back down. SDO mission scientists said the flare kicked up relatively cool gas and material.  "It is somewhat unique because at many places in the eruption there seems to be even cooler material —at temperatures less than 80,000 Kelvin," SDO scientists explained. A temperature of 80,000 Kelvin is about 143,540 degrees Fahrenheit (nearly 79,727 degrees Celsius). The sun's corona typically has temperatures ranging from 900,000 degrees F (500,000 degrees C) to 10.8 million degrees F (6 million degrees C). It can reach tens of millions of degrees when a solar flare occurs.  The sun is currently going through an active period in it is 11-year solar weather cycle. The current cycle is called solar cycle 24. Several NASA spacecraft are keeping constant watch on the sun for flares and CMEs, and serve as an early-warning system for major space weather events.
All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

Neb. nuclear plant briefly loses pumps that cool spent fuel during suspected electrical blaze

By Associated Press, Published: June 8

OMAHA, Neb. — A small fire briefly knocked out the cooling system for used fuel at a nuclear power plant in Nebraska, but temperatures never exceeded safe levels and power was quickly restored, federal officials said Wednesday.

The electrical system running the pumps that cool spent fuel in a pool of water was disrupted by a suspected electrical fire Tuesday, though one pump was restored shortly after the incident and another was running Wednesday, utility officials said.

Expert Warns Missouri River Could See “Flood of Biblical Proportions”
June 8, 2011 9:48 AM

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) -  An expert on Missouri River reservoirs is sounding a very loud, very urgent warning about the chance of catastrophic flooding this summer.

Bernard Shanks, an adviser to the Resource Renewal Institute, says the Fort Peck Dam and five others along the Missouri are already full with the Army Corps of Engineers releasing record amounts of water to prepare for snow-melt and heavy rain up-river.

        Listen to Bernard Shanks Interview

As a guest on KMOX’s Total Information AM Wednesday, Shanks was asked what he fears will happen should the Fort Peck Dam fail and set off a chain-reaction.

“There would be a flood like you’ve never seen,” Shanks told hosts Doug McElvein and Debbie Monterrey.  “It would be literally of biblical proportions.”

He foresees a very real threat of “chest-high” water in St. Louis before summer’s end.

Shanks’ main concern: that the Fort Peck dam, which he maintains is built with a “flawed design”, would be overwhelmed by snow-melt and heavy rains up north and give way, causing reservoirs downstream to collapse in a domino effect.

If that happens?

“It would be the most epic man-made disaster in the United States,” Shanks replied bluntly.

Few Preparing for Possible Flooding on Missouri River Here
Kevin Killeen
June 8, 2011 6:58 PM

ST. LOUIS–(KMOX)–Some are getting ready, but many are not,  as the National Weather Service is warning there could be serious flooding along the Missouri River here by next week.

Depending on how much rain falls up north,   the Missouri River could crest here between three-to-fifteen feet above flood stage, according to meteorologist Jason Goesslin.

The Missouri River rolls past Chesterfield Valley,  a flood plain that has been developed with millions of dollars of office parks, movie houses and retail centers since it went underwater in the flood of ’93. Few Preparing for Possible Flooding on Missouri River Here

Protected by a new levee the Army Corps of Engineers says is ready to handle what’s coming,  Chesterfield Valley was bustling with delivery trucks, office workers and bicyclists Wednesday –  with no one voicing concerns about flooding.

Crews racing floodwaters to build up Iowa levee

By GRANT SCHULTE and JOSH FUNK
Associated Press

HAMBURG, Iowa (AP) -- Crews are trying to beat floodwaters expected to arrive in Hamburg on Tuesday by building up a secondary barrier to protect the small Iowa town after the swollen Missouri River punched a massive hole in the main levee.

The river ruptured two levees in northwest Missouri on Monday, sending torrents of water over rural farmland toward Hamburg in southwest Iowa and a Missouri resort community downriver. By Wednesday, water spilling through a nearly 300-foot hole in the levee near Hamburg was expected to top a secondary levee built last week to protect the town.

The Army Corps of Engineers said crews are working to increase that wall's height by 3 feet. If it breaks, parts of Hamburg could be under as much as 10 feet of standing water, officials said.

"For right now, we believe we'll be able to get that elevation raised in the time available as that water flows across in the next 48 hours," Col. Bob Ruch, the corps' Omaha District commander, said Monday evening. "We've had excellent working conditions."

Across the border in Missouri, the river broke a 225-foot-wide hole through a levee near Big Lake in Holt County. About 30 residents had stayed in the resort town after the river started rising, but they were told to leave Monday. Big Lake is about 45 miles south of Hamburg.

Governor: Punishing amounts of water threaten levees

By JORDAN PASCALE / Lincoln Journal Star | Posted: Tuesday, June 14, 2011 6:15 pm

Gov. Dave Heineman returned Tuesday evening from a flight during which he surveyed rising floodwaters that continue to strain levees in the South Sioux City area.

Heineman commended the city's leadership and preparation and praised interstate cooperation among Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska officials at news conferences in Lincoln's Air National Guard base and one earlier in the day in South Sioux City.

"They feel very well-prepared," he said.

The river at Sioux City, Iowa, reached 33.12 feet by midafternoon Tuesday, down from 33.55 feet in the morning, as the release from Gavins Point Dam in Yankton, S.D., reached a historic high of 150,000 cubic feet per second.

Most levees around the Missouri River are built to withstand surge waters for three to four days, according to Nebraska Emergency Management officials.

This year, they likely will face punishing amounts of water for several months as the Army Corps of Engineers releases record amounts of water from Gavins Point.

"As the volume of water and the speed increases, we need to be very watchful in our state along the Missouri River," Heineman said.

Heineman’s worry: Will levees hold?

By Paul Hammel
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER

SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. — As Gov. Dave Heineman stood on a muddy temporary dike, local officials proclaimed their community safe from the rising floodwaters of the Missouri River.

But Heineman’s concerns were downstream, near Omaha — where water surrounds the nuclear power plant at Fort Calhoun, a state prison in east Omaha may have to be evacuated and workers were fighting to protect Eppley Airfield.

As the surge of water from reservoirs makes its way downstream, he said, the main focus will be on whether earthen levees can withstand weeks of pressure from record-high water.

“We’re at a critical stage,” Heineman said. “The levees were meant for a surge. What happens if water is there for several months? That is what we’re really concerned about.”

He spent most of Tuesday afternoon in a Black Hawk helicopter, surveying the expanding floodwaters from South Sioux City to Omaha.

There was visibly more water covering lowland fields along the Missouri between the two cities, he said, as well as higher water surrounding the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station just north of Omaha.

With floodwaters expected to remain high for weeks, it will put levees to an extreme test.

Can they take a long-term licking? Or will they crumble, like the breach that opened Monday in a levee near Hamburg, Iowa?

“It’s just an unknown,” said Joe Boyd, the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s liaison for the State of Nebraska, said during the tour. “They’ve never, ever seen this before.”

WTF?!?!?!  THIS IS UNFOLDING LIKE A BOOK.  I mean we saw the PRE-FALSE FLAG planning as it progressed from the beginning.  This would be like knowing everything we know today about 9/11, before 9/11.  WTF?  THESE PEOPLE NEED TO BE ARRESTED.  This is CONTROLLED DEMOLITION of the entire U.S. energy infrastructure and food supply.

I 100% guarantee you that you will NEVER hear about any disaster with a Bio-mass, solar, or wind powered plant--not because they are "safer", but because the New World Order isn't going to FALSE FLAG ATTACK their own fraudulent, energy RATIONING facilitating implementations.

Dr. John Coleman wasn't bullsh*tting when he said the NWO wants ALL nuclear power SHUT DOWN worldwide.  You cannot have mass slavery and a ZERO GROWTH economy when you have the huge, clean, reliable power output of Nuclear reactors.

FEMA Deliberately Sabotaging Hurricane Relief Efforts

Multiple parishes revolt, use armed guards to defend against feds

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
September 6, 2005

Numerous credible sources have come forward with examples of how the Federal Emergency Management Agency is deliberately sabotaging Hurricane Katrina relief efforts in New Orleans. This represents a ruthless attempt on the part of FEMA to impose a federal takeover of the area for their own benefit amid a tragedy that has already claimed anything up to 10,000 lives.

The mainstream media has picked up on this story but is whitewashing it as just another 'failure' of the federal government in dealing with the crisis.

In reality the actions are part of a coordinated campaign to deepen the scope of the disaster in order to force through bumper funding increases for FEMA.

Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard (pictured below) appeared on Meet the Press Sunday and broke down in tears as he described FEMA's criminal activities.

"We have been abandoned by our own country. Hurricane Katrina will go down in history as one of the worst storms ever to hit an American coast, but the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina will go down as one of the worst abandonments of Americans on American soil ever in U.S. history."



We had Wal-Mart deliver three trucks of water, trailer trucks of water. FEMA turned them back. They said we didn't need them. This was a week ago. FEMA--we had 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel on a Coast Guard vessel docked in my parish. The Coast Guard said, "Come get the fuel right away." When we got there with our trucks, they got a word. "FEMA says don't give you the fuel." Yesterday--yesterday--FEMA comes in and cuts all of our emergency communication lines. They cut them without notice. Our sheriff, Harry Lee, goes back in, he reconnects the line. He posts armed guards on our line and says, "No one is getting near these lines."

Why would FEMA, an organization supposedly tasked with helping in a time of crisis, deliberately cut police communication lines? This is a blatant example of sabotage and a sick push to make the disaster worse. In carrying out these actions, FEMA are no better than the animals who shot at rescue workers and helicopters.

Watch the video of the Meet the Press interview.

The mission of FEMA has never in reality been to bring people food and water and help in times of crisis. Alex Jones has attended numerous FEMA drills where the whole point of the exercise is to round people up, break up families and institute a brutal police state crackdown.

FEMA need to create a chaotic atmosphere in New Orleans so they can legitimize what they are doing.

We now have multiple reports of police being ordered to guard key infrastructures in order to defend them from FEMA federal agents. Sheriffs in numerous different counties are guarding highways to keep FEMA out. FEMA is being treated as the enemy because they are sabotaging key facilities in an effort to intentionally worsen the already desperate scenes of horror in New Orleans.



FEMA is sabotaging lines of communication so their activities cannot be exposed to the wider relief authorities and the media.

Commenting on the sabotage by FEMA of communication lines, Washington insider Wayne Madsen states,

"Jamming radio and other communications such as television signals is part of a Pentagon tactic called "information blockade" or "technology blockade." The tactic is one of a number of such operations that are part of the doctrine of "information warfare" and is one of the psychological operations (PSYOPS) methods used by the US Special Operations Command."

Radio host Carol Baker who has been tracking the FEMA sabotage stated that Plaquemines Parish Sheriff Jeff Hingle had his deputies patrol the county line under orders not to let FEMA in.

As is discussed in the Meet the Press interview, Jefferson Parish Sheriff Harry Lee also has armed guards patrolling the county line in order to prevent the FEMA sabotage.

FEMA has a number of executive orders that outline the total federal takeover of any US city.

For a full synopsis of FEMA's executive orders in light of the hurricane, click here.

FEMA is clearly using this human catastrophe as a means of executing its decade long plans and providing the pretext for future takeover scenarios of all major American cities.

Amongst a litany of government inaction and outright dereliction, this is the most alarming evidence to emerge yet that clearly indicates an agenda for the federal government to profit and expand its power from exploiting the aftermath of the hurricane.

We will continue to track this story as it develops.

In Harm's Way

When it comes to building on flood-prone land, no place does it like St. Louis.

"The St. Louis area is the epicenter of floodplain encroachment nationwide," says Nicholas Pinter, an SIUC geologist whose article on the subject appeared in an April 2005 issue of the journal Science.

"Because of the extent of human development on the floodplain, our research suggests that the next [flood] may well be bigger than the last," he says.



"More than any other place, the greater St. Louis metropolitan area is allowing its floodplain to turn into new strip mall development. It has $2.2 billion in new development on land that was under water in 1993--18,000 acres either in construction behind levees or in the planning stages. It's unprecedented."

The Federal Emergency Management Agency spent $56 million to buy out floodplain properties in Missouri and Illinois after the great Midwest flood of 1993. But subsequent floodplain development, which has been concentrated in the St. Louis metropolitan area, is "counterbalancing" the good that FEMA did, Pinter asserts.
