It rained between 4 - 8 inches in San Angelo and the surrounding area last night. One friend in town had 5" even, one just west of town had 7.25". The USGS website shows the N Concho at Carslbad went from 0 to over 20' in the 6 hours from midnight to 6AM. Looks like Ivie should be getting some serious water in the next few days . . .

Just for some reference, last May the same area got about 6 inches of rain in a 3 day period, not in one night, and Ivie came up about 8'. . .Twin Buttes came up over 10'.

Does the water in the Concho at Carlsbad end up in Ivie eventually? Sure will be good if it does! Oak Creek is rising a little, too soon to tell how much it will get.

That north concho that the Carlsbad area runs into will go to OC Fisher.

Many areas right around town in San Angelo had 4-6". Middle concho in San Angelo east side of town headed to Ivie was running around 9000 CFS this morning so it should catch some.

It does eventually. The North Concho flows into OC Fisher, which releases into the North Concho again, which flows til Bell street, where the North and Middle Concho converge. The common belief is they won't try to hold much of the water in OC and they'll let it flow down to Ivie.

The NWS in San Angelo has also issued a flood warning for the Middle Concho River north of Tankersley. If I am reading the map right the Middle Concho flows into Twin Buttes. It looks like Twin Buttes empties into the South Concho.

The flood statement said the expected crest at over 21 feet will be the highest since 2000. Anything over 18 feet is considered to be a flood.

I'm not sure how much that will eventually help Ivie.

I live on the North Concho around Grape Creek and it is higher than I have ever seen it in 15 years.

South Concho goes to South Pool of twin buttes, Middle concho and spring creek go to north pool. You are correct in that this wont help Ivie, but all rain east of twin buttes, which was pretty good, will go to Ivie. bring on more!!!

The map is deceiving. The South Concho actually flows North into TB. I know, it's really uncommon. The South and Middle converge in TB and then flow into Nasworthy, which then flows into the Middle Concho, that feeds Ivie.

This morning, the NWS reported that the Concho River at Bell St.(east side of San Angelo) is flowing at the highest rate in the history of recording it—in about 75 years. At Carlsbad, Texas, northwest of San Angelo, the North Concho River(goes into OC Fisher) is expected to crest at 20 feet sometime this morning. The Middle Concho River near Tankersley,(Goes into North Pool of Twin buttes) southwest of San Angelo is also flooding and expected to crest sometime this morning too.
