Was it right to use this reference?Edit

Good morning, I have been working to improve this recent event article, a d for the most part, I would properly use online sources (usually newspapers), however the first ref (see link above) is more like original research. When I posted it, I had figured it was reliable as it was obtained from a National Weather Service Office. However, I'm still concerned. I kept the ref for now, although I tagged it. What do you think?

According to this edit my reference was inappropriate? Just checking. Zanygenius(talk to me!)(email me!) 17:50, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Title of this articleEdit

I think the title does not correctly reflect the effected regions of this flooding event. Also the South Central United States and some Western United States experience major flooding. Has maybe someone (i.e. the National Weather Service) already coined some kind of official name for this event? NothingToSeeHere (talk) 08:55, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

There are articles discussing other related and unrelated flood events during 2019: Mississippi River Floods of 2019 and 2019 Arkansas River floods. The rain on snow event and subsequent ice-jams and floods in the Mid-west in March were extremely destructive. Photos of Spencer Dam show blocks on ice sitting on top of the dam. (Does anyone have photos that can be contributed to the Commons?) In my opinion, this flood event deserves its own wiki page. --MississippiRiverRat (talk) 03:14, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Article Needs To Be In Chronological OrderEdit

Very poor editing was done to this article, in which a user came in and changed the chronological order of the events and made it alphabetical. Why? The event in question should be listed state by state as to chronological order in time when the events happened. The Dakotas, then into Nebraska, then Iowa, etc, etc. Instead it is confusing and doesn't have an evolving play of events based on the dates that they all happened.

Would be interesting to hear from the person that made these foolish edits.2600:8804:80:2280:9411:75F1:4D21:E097 (talk) 14:17, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
