    Oh my goodness - I just heard about a flash flood that killed about 10 people at a campsite. Hope all our friends here and their loved ones are OK. Prayers for those who didn't make it. Very sad.

    I just heard about it myself and I live here! Its about 15 miles from here. They say an extreme flash flood hit that area about 3 this morning. So far 10 people dead and 50 or so missing. Cars, trucks and camp trailers/ rv's scattered everywhere. The campground and swimming area sits right on a small river and in a remote area away from anything. Its a very popular place. Its usually full of people from all over, especially Tx, Ok. and La. I have been listening to the scanner all morning and it sounds awful! :cry:
