By now, we’ve probably all seen at least some images of the catastrophic flooding hitting Texas and the Gulf Coast. But how can we put that into proper perspective here in the Midwest? According to the National Weather Service out of Pleasant Hill, the Lake of the Ozarks watershed is about the same size as the greater Houston area. As of Tuesday, the 32-35 inches of rain received from Harvey in Houston so far, according to the weather service, would be enough to completely fill Lake of the Ozarks not once, but twice. The Lake Area is not expected to receive any rain from what is now Tropical Storm Harvey. Parts of southeast Missouri and the Bootheel, however, will likely see some rain from Harvey Friday morning as the system continues on its northeast trek.
