Flash Flooding

English: Flash flood in the Gobi of Mongolia, 2004

 

We have had a lot of rain this last month.  A lot of rain for our area anyway, and with that has come multiple flash flood warnings, and many flash floods in our town.  Mostly it is just large amounts of water that wash through the waterways, overflow them and pull large quantities of topsoil downhill with it.  We have had some basements flooded, some driveways washed away, and many streets and parking lots under several inches of mud.  I am very grateful that despite flooding to both the east and west of us that we have been unaffected.
