Posted by feww on February 26, 2013

State of Emergency Declared for 56 Oklahoma Counties, Kansas City, Washington County, FL

The state of Oklahoma has declared a state of emergency for 56 counties due to a powerful winter storm that is pounding the state. Blizzard conditions have moved into the state, creating whiteout conditions, prompting the  closure of highways in the Oklahoma Panhandle.

Kansas

Kansas City Mayor has declared a State of Emergency for the city.

  • “This declaration allows the city to keep crews on, add additional personal to battle the storm, waive administrative and budget routine requirements and collective bargaining agreements, so that we are able to meet public safety and transportation needs without undue delay,” James said.  “Essentially we’re calling in everyone we can to help.” He said.
  • “This storm has the potential to be quite serious, and we know it’s going to dump somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 or more inches on Kansas City.”

Florida

Washington County in Florida has declared a state of emergency due to flash flooding. Torrential rains have inundated roadways causing dangerous driving conditions.

  • Significant flooding on the Choctawhatchee River is forecast with some sections expected to reach major flooding stage this week.

Mid-America:  Second major winter storm in five days

National Weather Service (NWS) has advised everyone from southern Texas to east-central Michigan to prepare for “one of the biggest winter storms to hit the region.”

  • “This is the second largest flood I’ve seen in 45 years, probably the third largest in 100 years.” said a long time resident of the Thora Valley.  “1950 was the really big one, followed by 2001, and then this current event,” he said.
  • Australia’s weather bureau is forecasting 24-hour rainfalls totals in south-east Queensland of up to 200mm.
