Opinion: Flash Flooding Needs to Be Severe Criteria

I think people are way too critical of National Weather Service official criteria. Some say “Why don’t you issue warnings for 30 mph winds,” while others say, “I will not acknowledge a warning for a storm that is not of that strength!” It goes on and on with the nitpicking, ridiculous suggestions and¬†opinions that aren’t […]

Incredible Flooding in Minnesota

WxRecap: Morgantown Flooded
