Live Video of the Army Corp Eng. Opening the Morganza spillway todayNot so much Geek Stuff but Very interesting to see...
The Army Corps of Engineers opened the spillway on the swollen Mississippi River today to relieve pressure on levees downstream.
Officials hope redirecting some of the water will save several major cities from devastating flooding.
But, it comes at the expense of seven southern parishes.
Governor Bobby Jindal estimated as many as 39-hundred people could be affected.
The Corps says it may open more bays if necessary. Ref: http://www.necn.com
