During the torrential rain that accompanies the pole shift hour and the hours following, all major rivers will flood their banks to a degree not in the memory of man. When the banks have been crested, the surrounding land becomes the river, with the water moving across flat land in a sheet, toward whatever is the drainage point. Man is accustomed to thinking of flood waters as relatively stationary, rising up foot by foot and then dropping in a like manner, so that issues of safety and protection of property from the flood are thought of as escape from the rising water. When the press of water upstream or upland is extreme, from a large amount of water, then flood waters are not stationary but move rapidly, tearing structures off their moorings so that more than the water is on the move. Trash of all manner will be in the swirling waters, headed for the sea across flat land not accustomed to floods at all! The flood will be a moving rush of water, not in its designated place within river banks, but across miles of land so that the whole state of Missouri, with the exception of the Ozarks, may become a river at flood tide.
