I came here for information from others before the next blast in a few hours. I live 20 miles from the initial blast in Missouri. If you look at a
map, I am east of Dexter, on delta farmland. So there are no rock ridges to deflect the blast, and our soils are completely saturated. My home is
surrounded with 2 feet of flood water on 3 sides. With the first blast, it took two minutes, and then there was a roar, and my house shook hard
enough that artwork fell from my walls.
The Corp has been "transparent" with us...up until this point. The KFVS12 reporter didn't realize...stating..."Maybe we'll be able to hear it".
They gave us NO indication that there would be enough energy from the blast to shake our homes. This makes me wonder if they even realized how much
energy they were releasing?
I have a theory about why they did the first blast under the cover of darkness. The first blast will be the most dramatic, as far as water rushing
through the breached area. By the time day breaks and the third blast occurs, much of the water will have already rushed into the area. It's
asinine, because the set-back levee has never been tested to hold up against pressure, much less rushing water. AND it was built in 1937.
I am going to attempt to post a graphic showing the flood area here. The green shaded part is the 130,000+ acres that will be flooded. This image
comes from the Birds Point Levee Facebook page, which is run by the Corp. I will also try to attach a link to that info.
God Bless all who live closer to the intentional breach. I hope the Corp knows what it has done. We have traded productive farm land, for a town
full of crack houses. A sad day for my area. My state (Missouri) fought for our rights, but in the end, it was futile.
This link will take you to the photo of the area that will be flooded (shaded in green), and from there you can visit the main facebook page for info
from the Corp.
