A FEMA release today documents just how bad and/or dangerous this situation is getting in North Dakota (most likely at Garrison Dam and two Nebraska Nuclear Reactor Facilities — one includes a GE Type 4 reactor).

The statement from FEMA’s website reads:

June 21, 2011

Mandatory Flooding Evacuations – City of Minot, ND (Ward County)

Due to heavy rainfall releases from Lake Darling (ND) need to be increased, which may result in severe flooding in the City of Minot (Ward County) and rural areas. Current release levels at Lake Darling are at 9,000 cfs, and this will be increasing to 16,000 – 17,000 cfs on Wednesday, June 22.

The high flows in to the Mouse (Souris) River in Minot can be expected to begin by Thursday, June 23. The current reading of the Mouse (Souris) River at 4:00 p.m. CDT on 20 June was 1553.29 feet and the new projected crest, due to the higher releases, is expected to reach 1,563.0 feet on June 26 or 27. This crest will be higher than the 1969 flood (1,555.4 feet) and 7-8 feet higher than the 1881 flood (1,558.0 feet).

A mandatory evacuation has been ordered for all residents in the original evacuation zones. All residents in the original evacuation zones 1-9, need to be out of their homes by 10:00 p.m. CDT on June 22, with the possibility of additional areas being added to this evacuation order. One shelter has opened at the Burlington School. The population of Ward County is 61,675 per 2010 census. No Federal requests have been received as a result of this situation at this time.

Nebraska: Multiple levees were overtopped this weekend along the Missouri River. On June 19, 2011, Federal Levee – R548, located south of Brownville, NE, overtopped. Water levels at the Brownville gage increased approximately 2 feet in 24 hours and contributed to water going over a 30 foot stretch on the southern portion of the levee system.

Illinois: Another federal levee overtopped in Scott County along the Illinois River. Flash flooding caused overtopping on the upper flank due to heavy rains in Jacksonville, IL, upstream on the Mauvaise Terre Creek. There were three breaches in the levee totaling 300 feet. Due to location and size of the breaches, there is not much that can be done to stop the flow. Estimates indicate that flows will stop entering the levee district within 12-24 hours. This levee district is mostly agricultural, but there are some homeowners within the district and they have been notified.

Missouri/Nebraska state line: The Brownville Bridge on US 136 at the Missouri/Nebraska state line is closed due to flooding caused by the overtopped levee (Missouri River). There are closures around Holt County and I-29 on levee unit I-550 located at the Upper Sonora bend of the Missouri River
Interstate 29 remains closed along parts of northwest Missouri and southeast Iowa.

Others have been documenting the “HAARP Ring” activity from North Dakota to Nebraska as floodwaters rise. Here is a forecast from dutchsinse on YouTube;

With the recent troop and equipment movements throughout the CONUS one must wonder what is brewing on the horizon.

Other articles have surfaced noting that the Calhoun Nuclear Plant has fuel rods already half submerged underwater as of June 20, 2011.
