#ThreeGorgesDam "still not on the Yellow River" edition. #TGD Reservoir at 151m (flood control 145-150m), high from last week's rains upstream but will lower from normal discharges this week. Upstream Chongquing, downstream Wuhan normal for season. China flooding in the news...
referred to an area just south of the Yellow River roughly between Luoyang and Zhengzhou. Initial reports were of Luoyang's 'Yihetan Dam' in danger of breaking. Many articles had dramatic file pictures of unrelated Xiaolangdi Dam (Yellow River) doing its annual sediment flushing.
Xiaolangdi flows about 5.5k m³/sec in the pictured flushing. Compare with #TGD's current 30k m³/sec 'normal' summer release. As far as I know, Xiaolangdi started flushing at the beginning of July this year and has finished. Reported flows are ~2.5k m³/sec now. The nearby city...
of Luoyang was flooding yesterday, but this seems to have been through other rivers flowing through the city - specifically the Yi River. Articles seem to have mistranslated 伊河滩 which is more like 'Yi river bank' or 'Yi river section'. There are several dams and barrages..
on the Yi inside Luoyang so not really sure if the military was warning that the banks/levees could collapse or if there was a dam somewhere inside the city. In any case, no collapse, but water was high enough to flood the city. Not as bad as #Zhengzhou, where rivers and...
reservoirs just southwest of the city were hit with the same torrential rains. The +500mm rain over three hours is what the area normally gets in an entire year. Those local rains subsided but areas north of Zhengzhou will be hit this week.windy.com/-Rain-accumula…
Ten-day ECMWF models ('guess') show typhoon rains reaching lower Yangtze and poor Anhui farms, but not #ThreeGorgesDam. Seasonal rains upstream of Chongquing. Yellow River/Zhengzhou area looks OK, but accumulation in areas to the north.
Xinxiang (north of Zhengzhou) last night: 327.2 mm during the storm.

Was wondering why the Maricopa County Recorder is also obstructing the Senate's #AZAudit. What kind of fraud is he hiding? Why is he worried about the routers? I'll offer this for consideration:
This was a declaration on the AZ state lawsuit here:
Basically, the guy registers to vote in AZ in 2017, moves out of state in 2019 and finds out he (someone) voted in 2020. They changed his voter registration. Later on, he...
goes back to the County Election's website only to find his voter profile deactivated. Voter registrations are on the VM08 system in the Maricopa County Recorder's office. So is this a big deal? Well, consider these numbers...

Routers. @maricopacounty (and apparently the Soros Sheriff @mcoaz) are bleating their self-serving spin on refusing the router subpoena. In doing so, they're publicly mocking the well-reasoned Feb. decision of the AZ Superior Court and Judge Timothy Thomason. Image
The county's first attempts to obstruct the AZ Senators from doing their job was to make various claims about the authority of the Senate and the validity of subpoenas. Judge Thomason masterfully tiptoes through the political minefield and whacks down... Image
each of the county's lame whiney arguments. The Judge ruled on the authority of the Senate and validity of the subpoenas and (rightfully) ignored the county's conspiracy theories about the Senate's supposed secret intent. It's worth the read (15 pages): s3.documentcloud.org/documents/2049… Image
