  • Description

    FLOODING BETWEEN THE LEVEES IN THE UNITED STATES....MANY CROPS OF FALL AND WINTER VEGETABLES LOST. ABRAW, PENITAS (PAY-NET-TAS) (CQ) AND LOS EBANOS (CQ) ARE THE WORST IN THE UNITED STATES. MAJOR FLOODING IS IN MEXICO, MANY THOUSANDS OF ACRES UNDER WATER. CAMARGO (CQ) A CITY OF 8-THOUSAND EVACUATED....MANY SMALL VILLAGES AND COMMUNITIES EITHER FLOODED OR CUT OFF BY WATER. FLOODING IN MAJOR CITIZENS RIVER REYNOSA (RAY--NO--SA) (CQ) AND MATAMOROS, MEXICO....AND BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS AVERTED SO FAR BY LEVERS. SOME FLOODING IN CUTLYING AREAS OF REYNOSA AND MATAMOROS. POORLY KEPT MEXICAN IN VEES, WHERE THEY HAVE THEM, HAVE BEEN BREACHED NUMEROUS TIMES.

    BOTH THE UNITED STATES AND MEXICAN FLOODWAY SYSTEMS ARE GOING FULL BLAST NOW. THIS DIVIDES THE RIVER INTO THREE PARTS AND TAKES MUCH OF THE PRESSURE OFF THE TWO MAJOR CITIES OF BROWNSVILLE AND MATAMOROS. SOME 15 OR 20 MILES PAST THE RIVER SPREADSOUT OVER THE COASTAL (INHIBITED) (CQ) FLATS. THE RIO GRANDE HASN'T HAD A MOUTH FOR SEVERAL YEARS DUE TO THE DROUGHT. HOW FLOWER FREELY INTO THE GULF.

    WATER COMES FROM UPSTREAM (PRESIDIO) AND FROM THE RIO SAN JUAN, WHICH HEADS UP IN THE MOUNTAINS SURROUNDING MONTEREY AND SATILLIO, MEXICO (CQ)....PLUS HEAVY RAINS IN THE LOCAL AREA.

    FROM FALCON DAN (CQ) AND LAKE (RESERVOIR) IT IS APPROXIMATELY 150 LAND MILES TO BROWNSVILLE AND 240 RIVER MILES. (IT'S A REAL WINDING SNAKE)
