not too bad yet. Re: foot of rain in 2 days. Lakes overflowing.

It seems that the water is getting very close but all businesses are staying open except for 4 that are on artificial islands — the bridges connect to walkways that are now under water.
The Lakes are built to handle large quantities of water but this is pushing it to the limits but water levels seems to have stopped rising.
Some houses are partly submerged, but that is their choice to build there – covered by insurance usually.
This photo is the big shopping center downtown that is quite lively after people de-stress after the holiday.
People insist on parking as close as possible so they get some wet tires although there is lots of parking farther away.

Water creeping toward our condos.
Very deep 60 feet?
Very wide.
Very fast moving.

My condo is much higher than this, our lowest building.
Usually I can’t see any water from this standing position.
Lots of spectators.
Tourists everywhere.

BRANSON, Missouri – Table Rock Lake is on the path to break its own water level record, set during the floods of 2011.

Table Rock Lake is currently rising at around a half a foot an hour, leading the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Table Rock Lake to make such a prediction

Rising waters at Table Rock Lake also mean the dam is having to release as much water as it can:

the lake is still open for recreational use, but he cautions boaters to be on the lookout for large debris, which are often either floating in the water or submerged just beneath view.
