Officials with Table Rock Lake and the Army Corps of Engineers say the water level should crest at a new record high sometime Wednesday.  Projections released Wednesday morning have Table Rock topping out at 935.50 feet above sea level. As of 11:00 am Wednesday the lake had already hit 935.36 feet , more than 2 feet higher than the previous record set back in 2008. Officials at Table Rock Dam told KSPR News that they continue to keep a close watch on the situation, especially with more rain in the forecast this weekend.  Hydro Engineers from the Corps are now on site 24 hours a day. For now the plan is to continue releasing 68,000 cubic feet of water per second into Lake Taneycomo, also a record, until the lake level drops to at least 931 feet.  The flood gates will stay open in some way until the water drops to 920 feet.

Extensive flooding continues across parts of the Ozarks tonight as torrential rains have fallen over the past 24 hours. First I want to show you something from earlier tonight across Arkansas. You are used to seeing us show you storms on radar and the "hook echo". Well earlier just north of Little Rock a devestating storm took place. I took a snapshot of both the reflectivity and the velocity images as the storm was heading into the Volonia area. This will be a city you hear a lot about over the next few days.

A food and clothing bank that wants to aide flooding victims is in need of help itself. HopeCenter volunteers and several Hollister business owners are trying to salvage anything they can from floodwaters inside their buildings near Turkey Creek Junction in Hollister. The HopeCenter gives food and clothing to 120-130 families every month. “Cans of baby food were floating around and the clothing was already drenched,” HopeCenter Church Pastor Melissa Harris said. “We had our whole church come down and try to take everything out that could be saved.” Some clothes were salvageable but most everything wasn't.

From the City of Branson: The city of Branson this week received the long awaited final ruling from FEMA that stated Branson Landing buildings 1-6 are “reasonably safe from flooding.” This final written report followed an inspection of the buildings on the west side of the Landing by FEMA officials from Kansas City last August. Following that Landing tour, FEMA official Dean Ownby said the buildings appeared to be reasonably safe from flooding, but an official ruling would be issued later when he further studied the findings of his site visit.

2011 started with tragedy, on New Year's Day, people realized the full extent of the damage from storms the day before.  That's when a line of supercells moved into the Ozarks.  Nine tornadoes ripped through Northern Arkansas to Lecoma to Fort Leonard Wood.  The EF-3 tornado hit Fort Leonard Wood when most people were gone for the holidays.  If it was any other time, the death toll could have been much higher.  In all, four people died in Missouri,...

The Army Corps of Engineers is advising people in flood plains downstream of Beaver, Table Rock, Bull Shoals and Norfork dams in northern Arkansas and southern Missouri to maintain awareness and monitor lake levels and weather.  These lakes remain nearly full from recent rains, and more rain is forecast in coming days. The news is worrying those who are still recovering from recent floods. The signs of Branson's first flood of the year are still visible on homes near Hawthorne Street.

(Rockaway Beach, MO) -- Once a thriving tourist spot, Rockaway Beach is now barely staying afloat. The town sits on Lake Taneycomo. In 2001, the Army Corps of Engineers said the lake needed to be dredged. Now, 9 years later, it's so bad it could cost the town millions of dollars to fix it. In the 1940's and 50's, Rockaway Beach was considered, by some, to be the Fort Lauderdale of the Midwest. It's where high school and college students flocked on their spring breaks. But, over the decades, tourists started going elsewhere.
