    Flash Flood Update: Caddo Gap

     

    I went to the  area around Albert Pike, I have been there many times, I have done  topographical studies for the US Corps of Engineers in which everyone  knew that the area was in a "Bowl" shaped land mass which meant that  those waters that rose more than 4 feet per hour came down at a rate  that no one could have escaped. There was simply no where to go,, going  up found waters so high it pushed huge boulders and vehicles back down  into the "Bowl". I seen what was a truck that had wedged itself between  two trees and was told that some people had hung on to that truck for  hours while it bobbed up and down like a cork. There are more than 20  reported lives that have passed,, some are still looking for those who  people know where there but no one knows now where they are.  Nevertheless, they continue to look downstream searching for survivors.  This is still s rescue,, not a recovery,, not yet,, I still have Hope.
