|May 20th is the average start date for the rainy season and it comes to an end on average on Oct 17th. |
So today it rained and then it rained some more. Enough to raise the lake level from 16.3 feet above sea level to 18.6 feet. High, but not equal to the record of 20 feet set on 8/28/2012.
As for flooding, our community was designed to handle a lot of water and we easily stayed dry today as we did when the lake was at 20 feet.
For more on how the lake system is designed and why it should be able to handle even heavier rainfalls and greater depths see How Things Work - The Lake.
