Listen: Missouri, Mizzou, Missouri River discussed on Overnight America
"All absolutely it's been our lead story probably since last Thursday when I look like the storm was actually going to head towards land. Because there was a concern that it could very well take a path that would take it into Virginia long term, and and create a great deal of flooding risk and impact we may still get some flooding out of this especially out in the far southwestern part of the state because the storm is actually supposed to go into North Carolina and then curve north and that would dump a whole lot of rain into the mountains, which is not a you will get mountain flooding in in in a very bad. Well, that's the far end of the other side of the state because you're right, all the way almost all the way to the east of the state. So that that is correct. But that water has to go downhill. It goes downhill towards us. So we actually see some river flooding at some point. I mean as people know in Missouri. You know, when you get the water coming down, the Missouri river, and you know, when you get a lotta rain in other areas of the country are in the Missouri watershed. That's gotta go somewhere in there. Eventually, you know, it it can God flooding in areas far removed from where the rain occurred. So you're Mizzou grad, aren't you? I am I went to Mizzou from ninety three to ninety seven. In fact, I was there right? At the tail end up the great flood in ninety three. Oh, wow. So you were able to see some pretty big weather related news stories while you were here. And of course, Missouri has tornadoes. You don't get to see the hurricanes out this way. But yeah, the flooding is something that's been an issue. Even last year. There was some flooding issues earlier in the year. Absolutely. Yeah. Yeah. I know right in the correct me if I'm wrong, right along the Merrimack and some of those areas, I guess in the last couple of years I have relatives that live out near Wildwood as well. No, no, no, no, no, greatly of the flooding your shoes. How many relatives you got? You got relatives of Carolina's. You've got some here, Missouri. I I belong to a large Catholic family. Well, this is the place for them to be Matt deadline W R V A. Our sister station over in Richmond Virginia. So what happens next? It doesn't. Look like, you're going to be camping up the radio station with your sleeping bags because the storms heading south. That's what we're basically going to be doing now is just sort of monitoring the state response. Obviously there is some risk for coastal flooding, and and that can occur up and down the state all the way actually up to DC because you've got the Chesapeake Bay there. You can have coastal flooding along the bay as well as the storm surge comes in. So that's gonna be something."
