FOR Rainman Bob Bailey (mostly reliable and sometimes scientific observations) reports a total of 4.6" of rainfall in the last 24 hours located between the FM 521 bridge and the FM 2611 Churchill bridge. To see how rainfall affects the river, go to Important Links and click on the four flood gauges located on the river. The "San Bernard River near Old Ocean" is the closest gauge to this location.
San Bernard River Flood Crest History
Compiled by FOR Backyard River Hydrologist Tom Ronayne (mostly scientific observations and sometimes reliable )
These are the five highest flood crests since July of 1979. The two in 1979 were not measured at either location and are derived from the estimated height of the water flowing over Hwy 35 both times. The other three crests were measured at either Hwy 35 or the Phillips 66 San Bernard terminal and a level is estimated for the other location.
