    Background: Over the past 3 days widespread rains of 6-10 have fallen on the Colorado river watershed above Austin. You may have seen amazing video of the Llano River wiping out homes and bridges. The llano river hit its highest level since 1935 with 300,000 cfs of water flowing into the CO River above Lake Travis at one point, This combined with other runoff caused Lake Travis to rise over 30 feet in 2 days!! The current level at Lake Travis is over 701 feet with many homes flooded already...5th highest of all time Llona river has receded with only...

    How far would you go when you’re really craving pizza? Rickey McCray posted a viral video Tuesday that resonated with Texans, who have been dealing with plenty of flooded roads with all the recent rains. McCray told KENS 5 that Allen ordered the pizza, but the driver couldn’t deliver it because County Road 330 was blocked on Tuesday due to flooding. They told the driver that they would drive to meet him – and their pizza. Allen can be seen with bags over his legs, wading through water that went up past his ankles.

    Inselbergs. Evidence for rapid Flood runoff. by Michael Oard As the world’s continents were uplifted from the waters of the global Flood, they were greatly eroded. During this massive erosion, the rocks that weren’t pulverized were transported hundreds of kilometres toward the oceans. The enormous power of the receding water, relentlessly shaving off the surfaces it flowed over, left behind large flat areas known as planation surfaces, along with coastal Great Escarpments, large natural bridges, and freestanding arches. Scientists studying conventional geomorphology find all these features puzzling because they ignore the Flood and rely only on slow erosion over millions...

    Dane County officials declared a state of emergency Tuesday morning after rain overnight Monday broke a state record for heaviest amount to fall in a 24-hour period, according to Dane County Emergency Management. The National Weather Service estimates that as much as 13 inches of rain has fallen in parts of western Dane County on Monday and Tuesday. The official state record for rainfall in a 24-hour period is 11.72 inches of rain, which occurred northeast of Mellen in northern Wisconsin on June 24, 1946. The National Weather Service has received numerous reports of rainfall from western Dane County that...

    The problem of the wet Sahara by Michael Oard This article is from Journal of Creation 31(1):3–4 April 2017 Both creation and secular geologists agree the earth’s deserts and semi-arid areas were once well watered.1 Creation scientists attribute this to the ponding of water in enclosed basins during the run-off stage of the Flood and greater Ice Age precipitation. During this time the Great Salt Lake in Utah, USA, was about 12 times its current area and about 330 m deeper.2 Measuring the ancient shorelines in Death Valley, California, USA (figure 1), shows a lake once filled Death Valley 170...

    A massive water main break in Philadelphia sent tens of thousands of gallons of water rushing through the streets in Center City, causing power outages, road closures and bus detours during the Tuesday morning commute. The 48-inch main reportedly broke around 4 a.m. just blocks away from City Hall. It was not immediately clear what caused the incident, but two hours later, water was still gushing through the area. “This is the worst water main break I’ve ever seen,” a Philadelphia Water Department spokesperson told FOX29.

    Scientists Prove Limestone Can Form Quickly BY TIM CLAREY, PH.D. * | THURSDAY, JUNE 07, 2018 Many environmentalists are concerned with the anthropogenic production of carbon dioxide produced by burning fossil fuels. Research projects are being funded across the globe to find ways to sequester the “extra” CO2 produced by these processes in an effort to save our planet. These results show that the primary minerals that compose limestone can rapidly form—easily within the timeframe of the global Flood in Genesis. One of these projects was discussed recently in an article by Valeria Perasso of the BBC News Service.1 She...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | May 12, 2018 | Philip Cottraux
    By Philip Cottraux First, some background info. A friend of mine posted a recent chat on her YouTube channel with an orthodox professor of Biblical studies who doesn't believe the first 11 chapters of Genesis should be taken literally. While he still maintains to be a Christian, he believes that the Garden of Eden, the flood, and the tower of Babel are myths that God used as symbols of his relationship with man. I thought I would present historical evidence for Noah’s flood to contribute to their discussion (I've linked the following blog to them on Twitter to read and...

    For the last two years, Richard and Linda Brown have been living in a shell of a home -- no insulation, drywall or flooring -- while trying to raise four kids. Their house in Louisiana was destroyed by floodwaters in 2016. At the time they didn't panic, because they had a flood insurance policy worth $168,000. To date, they've received less than half of that -- around $62,000. "We pay into this premium, and all I want is [it] just to be fair, and we weren't getting fair," Linda said. Two years later, they're living in a house that's still...

    Assembling the Pre-Flood World BY TIM CLAREY, PH.D. * | FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 2018 Knowledge of the pre-Flood world is limited because the Bible only gives a few details. Some creationists have relied heavily on secular interpretations in their studies on continental configurations and pre-Flood geography. ICR’s geological research is the first to tackle this issue using actual rock data from around the globe.

    Cosmos ^ | March 26, 2018 | Andrew Masterson
    Once upon a time there was a massive flood across the Mediterranean Sea, an in-pouring of water so huge that it excavated a canyon five kilometres deep and 20 kilometres long, and created a waterfall with a 1.5 kilometre drop. Evidence for the great flood, long hypothesised, has now been found by a team of researchers led by geoscientist Aaron Micallef from the University of Malta. And while several Mediterranean traditions feature great flood narratives, the earliest arising from Sumeria and already well enough known to be recorded in cuneiform by the seventeenth century BCE, this one is unlikely to...

    Dinosaur and Mammal Tracks Found Together February 1, 2018 | David F. Coppedge In what is being called the mother lode of Cretaceous tracks, mammals, dinosaurs and pterosaurs left their prints in a table-sized rock. Of all places: at Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, a property representing the cutting edge of human technology, dinosaurs left their mark. Ray Stanford was dropping off his wife at work when he noticed an unusual rock outcrop. As an amateur paleontologist, he looked and saw a dinosaur track, so he began digging. Soon he had an 8′ x 3′ slab of rock that...

    The Houston Chronicle ^ | 12/10/2017 | David Hunn, Ryan Maye Handy, and James Osborne
    The National Flood Insurance Program, designed to protect Americans from catastrophic floods, has failed in almost every way, encouraging people to buy and build in flood-prone areas while increasing the cost and magnitude of disasters. Congress' efforts to reform the program have failed just as thoroughly. Attempts to fix flood insurance have been derailed repeatedly by special interests, political expediency and powerful lobbies that have poured hundreds of millions of dollars into congressional campaigns, a three-month examination by the Houston Chronicle reveals. Banks, builders, insurers and real estate agents — supported by property owners and allies in Congress —have combined...
