I know right... 19" inches in 45 minutes in Marble Falls and Lake Travis goes up 5 ft. in 1 hour and we think we have problems...

No flooding in Alamo Ranch! I was in East Texas last week and called to check on 'our' houses! My back yard is quiet 'squishy' but it is still settling, too. You'll hear all about that when you move in! We're learning from the QA guy and our neighbors that the soil around the Bermuda pallets has to settle and be filled in as needed. It really is making a difference! Remind me where you will be in AR.

This thread was started in July 2007. Apparently it made the national news.

My question is: How did it rain for so many days nonstop back in 2007 and not flood like it did this weekend? The flood this weekend was basically caused by a few hours of rain.

It wasn't just a few hours rain, from what I hear. If it had truly happened all within a few hours, there would be much more deaths, instead of the reported 3 deaths. San Antonio is still a dangerous place when it rains a lot. Flash Flood Alley...still.

I'll take "Flash Flood Alley" any day over "Tornado Alley".

Stone Oak is in the hills. Lots of water and I saw some on the golf course but everything else was just headed downhill. I didn't really even realize how bad it was until the next day when I heard about our flood on the national news. It's doubtful out here you are going to have your house flood. Had alot of stuff canceled due to rain but otherwise we just stayed inside when it was coming down and it didn't affect us.

They say that SA is not in flood danger even with days and days of nonstop rain.

What is different about the rains that do cause flood?

Other than an isolated intersection here and there most of the Stone Oak area drains quickly. I live in the area and my rain gauge was full at five inches by the time I could see it Saturday morning. My biggest indicator that we'd gotten a lot was my pool was overflowing onto the patio and that hasn't happened in years.
