    Last fall I overseeded a lawn with Titan Fescue. Probably got 95% germination. The grass has been so green and thick it was almost black. It really looked great. Last Friday we had a hugh thunder storm. The water was almost a foot deep over the fescue. Now it is dying. I raked out part of the dead grass that was just laying flat and matted. What to do?:confused:

    Would need to see some photo's to be sure, but sounds like you got the same problem as me; see here:

    Your south of me so probably got worse humidity then I do, combine that with the flood waters which I've also had and fescue just sounds like Brown patch.
