Deadly Indiana flooding leaves multiple missing
John Murphy
One person has died and several are still missing after flash flooding impacted parts of southeastern Indiana and northern Kentucky on Saturday.
A female in Jefferson County, Indiana, was killed at around 5 a.m. on Sunday morning after being unable to escape her home due to flood waters. Her home was one of multiple to get swept away due to the flooding. The female's body was found five miles downstream from where her house was swept away, according to WLKY.
The Jeff-Craig Fire Department began rescuing people from flood waters at about 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, according to a post by the department on Facebook.
Multiple homes were washed away on Saturday night due to the flooding, according to Jefferson County Indiana Emergency Management Director Troy Morgan. Several calls came in for water rescues as flooding continued to impact the area and as of Sunday morning, multiple people were still missing.

The flooding in Jefferson County caused additional incidents such as cars being stuck in trees, roads becoming washed away and homes vanishing, according to WHAS 11.
Southern Indiana and northern Kentucky have dealt with several flooding and heavy rain reports since Saturday afternoon. Taylorsville, Kentucky, located about 25 miles southeast of Louisville, reported 4.39 inches of rain on Saturday night.
In Indiana, the highest report of precipitation, 4.03 inches, came from Fairview, which is located about 30 miles southwest of Cincinnati, Ohio. The first reports of street flooding in Indiana came in at 2:42 p.m. on Saturday when water was seen coming out of sewers and some elevated roadways became flooded near Evansville, Indiana.
Indiana State Route 250 was closed at the bridge in Switzerland County as flood waters damaged the road. The department resumed debris removal along with search and rescue efforts at 8 a.m. on Sunday.

'Life-threatening' flash flooding submerges roads, cars in northwest Georgia
Heather Brinkmann
CHATTOOGA COUNTY, Ga. - A Flash Flood Emergency was issued Sunday for parts of northwest Georgia after hours of nonstop rain flooded roads and damaged homes.
The National Weather Service issued an emergency for Chattooga County after extreme flooding in the cities of Lyerly and Summerville.
Roads were washed away, and two families were said to have been taken to shelters after rain completely flooded their homes.
The NWS warned of the "life-threatening flooding" as rain totals approached upwards of a foot.
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp declared a State of Emergency Sunday afternoon in response to the devastating flooding.
A Flash Flood Emergency means there is a severe threat to human life from a flash flood, and catastrophic damage is happening or will happen soon. You should move to higher ground immediately. This is the direst of flood alerts issued by the NWS.
Flash Flood Warnings have been issued throughout Floyd counties as well.
A boil water advisory was issued for all Summerville water customers until further notice.
Video in Summerville shows the flooding submerging roads as rain dampens the region.
Rain chances are expected to continue for the area through Monday before starting to taper off on Tuesday.

Tennessee River expected to rise 6-7 feet in Chattanooga as heavy rains shut down barge traffic, flood low lying areas _ Chattanooga Times Free Press
February 6, 2020 at 11:13 p.m. Updated February 7, 2020 at 1:55 p.m.
by Dave Flessner
Staff Photo by Robin Rudd / The high water of South Chickamauga Creek rushes over the old dam that once served the Graysville Mill in Graysville, Georgia. Heavy rain and flooding forced the closing of some local school systems on February 6, 2020.
With a normal month's worth of rain falling in the Tennessee Valley in just the past two days, the Tennessee River in Chattanooga is expected to rise another 6 or 7 feet from the rainfall runoff, shutting off barge traffic through Chattanooga and potentially flooding some low-lying areas and parks along the river.
"We've seen very heavy rainfalls, anywhere from 2 inches to 6 inches of rain in the past couple of days, and we could see another wave of heavy rain again near the end of next week," James Everett, the senior manager for the TVA River Forecast Center in Knoxville, said Thursday.
River levels in Chattanooga are projected to rise at the Market Street Bridge from the normal winter pool of 21 feet up to about 28 feet as TVA releases up to 167,613 cubic feet per second - or more than 1.2 million gallons of water a second - by Sunday to help cope with the heavy rains, Everett said.
The anticipated river level in Chattanooga is still 2 feet below flood stage and 2 feet lower than what the river reached in February 2019 when more than 11 inches of rain fell in the Tennessee Valley and raised river levels by 9 feet a year ago.
But Everett said the heavy rains through most of TVA's 41,000-square-mile area in the Tennessee
River watershed this week will raise most lake levels near or above summertime pool levels and cause some flooding in low-lying areas, especially in parts of northern Alabama and western Tennessee.
Due to the heavy flow and high water on the Tennessee River, the U.S. Coast Guard has suspended river barge traffic through the Nickajack gorge west of Chattanooga, shutting down most river navigation probably for the next couple of weeks. Fort Loudon and Watts Bar dams also are not handling barge traffic due to the high water.
"It looks like we're going to be scrambling for the next couple of weeks," said Cline Jones, executive director of the Tennessee River Valley Association, the trade group that represents the region's barge industry. "We're keeping our fingers crossed that we don't get a whole lot more rain and it isn't as bad as last year."
During February 2019, river navigation was shut down for most of a month due to record high rains.
"We're going to see very similar levels to what we had last February, with lake levels on many of TVA's reservoirs getting above summer pool levels," Everett said. "We do expect most of the heavy rain to push through the Valley today with only scattered activity over the weekend and limited rain early next week."
But the National Weather Forecast is predicting a good chance of heavy rains again near the end of next week.
With the ground already saturated after heavier than normal rain last month and the second highest rainfall on record in 2019, the additional rainfall next week could keep TVA storage reservoirs upstream of Chattanooga well above their normal winter levels for weeks to come.
TVA uses its network of 49 dams to help limit flooding, especially in Chattanooga, which is the drainage route for thousands of acres of the Tennessee River watershed. TVA estimates its flood control measures helped avert $1.6 billion of flood damages in Chattanooga last year alone.
In 2019, 66.47 inches of rain fell in the Tennessee Valley, second only to the record high 67.02 inches that fell in the region in 2018. Normal rainfall across the Tennessee Valley averages 52.5 inches a year, according to TVA.

2022.01.07 22:59 rcmaehl DuckDuckGo redirecting to MSN instead of the original source

Hi all,
I'm attempting to use duckduckgo for URLs. The format I'm using is
I need it to pull up the best result, however DuckDuckGo seems to pull up MSN news containing an embedded article instead of the original source. An example of this is:
which pulls up an embedded MSN copy of the article https://www.msn.com/en-us/weathetopstories/thursday-snow-snow-has-ended-some-areas-pick-up-9-inches/ar-AASr6I4
instead of WLKY Louisville https://www.wlky.com/article/jay-cardosi-snow-chance-louisville-kentucky-amounts/38669035
MSN copies the article title word for word, so if someone was to search for that exact title using DuckDuckGo it should pull up the original source. At least one other search engine does this properly from testing. The currently way duckduckgo is doing this is just is silly and allowing the anti-competitive practices of Microsoft

2016.09.01 04:10 autotldr Record for lack of hurricanes continues

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 67%.
There have been 68 Atlantic basin hurricanes since Wilma hit Florida in 2005.
In 2004 Florida had 4 hurricanes in 45 days and in 2005 Katrina and Rita hit west of Florida and Wilma, a category 4 storm hit south Florida.
At that time, some scientists incorrectly predicted that this was a sign of things to come and that almost every year would have numerous hurricanes, many of the strong and damaging.
Well, 11 years later we are still waiting for that next Florida hurricane.
Florida hurricanes by decade.... 1950's 4.
A Cat 3 hurricane has winds of 115 mph or higher and a major hurricane is a Cat 3, 4 or 5.Just under 11 years without a major hurricane hitting the U.S. is a record.

2014.08.01 04:37 kloudykat Weird Ball on WLKY Traffic Cam?

Friend was watching WLKY last night and on the 11 o'clock news they showed the time-lapse view from a taller building on the Indiana side of the river, looking south at Louisville.
Apparently there was a black ball that appeared on screen and hovered mid-air and there was a light that was spotlighting it. The light tracked down with the ball, then the ball disappeared and the light went with it.
Yes, friend has TIVO. I am going to try and get video up this weekend if he saved it, which I am sure he did.
I was just wanting to see if anyone else noticed the alie......er, floating balls during the weather last night.
