Thank you!!
This is far from over obviously as they are talking about blowing two more levees within the next week. Water is still rising in many areas and now they are forecasting more rain and storms (some severe) for the next week... I have to say this...
I have a rather spirited blue heeler... barks at everything... since that first blast last night she has laid on the porch in her chair and not made a peep. She didn't come and greet me when I got home from work, which is totally out of character for her... she just lays in that chair with a pitiful look on her face... I even tried to get her to come in, which she loves.... she wouldn't! Just wanted to mention that and I will be keeping my eye on her... maybe she is just scared from the explosions... its strange though...

Thank you and your welcome!

Thanks for that "Sand Blows"

That along with Freedom12's info should be taken into much consideration

Animal Behavior is possibly the best indicator to EQ activity!

My father is a hunter and we have had scores of dogs around here throughout the years...
and we still have dogs...

once upon a time... in my teenage years

I had bought a really big fire cracker... M80 they say its equivalent to a quarter stick of dynamite...

I may have accidentally exploded it in the side of the hill not too far from my dad's dogs...

Needless to say I got a stern talking to...

"Now you gone and made my dogs 'gun shy', they won't ever be right for hunting" -My Dad

The dogs "cheered" up after some time... but until they did, you could burp around them and they would cower...
took them a week to come out of their houses lol

So I would prolly say your dog is just scared, cos dogs have really sensitive hearing

but yeah.. this flood stuff is far from over... rain rain and more rain is coming... then there will be the snow melting from up north... record amounts even... so its going to be a very wet spring!

Plus i have heard, that Louisiana is expecting a sore outcome to all these floods...

this isnt really an update... but wanted to throw it out there...

From the Birds Point New Madrid Floodway Joint Information Center- CoE Facebook Page

Located Here

We'll be signing off for the night and will continue to provide updates in the morning. Thanks.

So thats it for now from them, until tomorrow...

Also gonna bring this back into light... old news from earlier, but for the ones who may have skipped to the end of this thread... here ya go

Birds Point New Madrid Floodway Joint Information Center:
We have procured additional slurry mix for breaching the third levee section (outflow crevasse). We expect to complete the final blast tomorrow. Our engineers have studied the setback levees and see no elevated risk at New Madrid or other communities outside of the floodway and the project is performing as designed.

So as of 5 hours ago, they were/are planning to blow the third levee section... updates tomorrow

Also... again old news but popping it anyways...

Birds Point New Madrid Floodway Joint Information Center
When asked about the Bonnet Carre and Morganza spillways down river MG Walsh stated that, while no decisions have been made at this point, the likelihood of eventually opening the Bonnet Carre Spillway is 'High" and the likelihood of opening the Morganza Spillway is "Medium to High." He also noted that no decisions regarding those spillways will likely be made until next week at the earliest.

There is still a possibility that more Levee's will be blown

Pumped two feet of water out of the basement today.

It doesn't usually fill up that fast.

That's always a heartache!
Water can be one mean mother!

I live in a trailer, so no basement...

but last February we found out we had a leak...

We had to replace sections of the floor and had to replace the Washing Machine (it was the cause)

Water can destroy a home a drop at a time...

Now add in 2 feet of water over how many square feet... that is quite a problem!

Glad you was able to get it pumped out...

you will prolly have to stay on your toes the next few days

I know everyone is probably gone to bed, but this is a video from Illionis, that someone say the water there went way down since Bird Point was blown.

this was 23 hours ago so that would have been just 2 hours after the levee blew, I wouldn't think the water would go down that fast??

Here is another video, of Bird Point Area. I shows a lot of water still pouring into the farm land, Maybe the River has gone down more [?] It is heart breaking anyway it goes.

This is the afternoon of the 3rd

Ohhhhh I'm still awake

That's the beauty of insomnia

Awesome, Videos!!

Thanks for updating!!!

I really wish I could watch them!! Curse of the dail-up internet

But you said the video said, that the water has went down...
Good!! Good!!

Makes me happy!

I can't benefit from it...
but others can


Well I am glad that the Levee plan worked...

...but I just had the thought... maybe its the paranoid in me... but...
doesn't that just take care of the problem for now?
What about downstream?

Cos they are scheduled to blow the 3rd part of the levee tomorrow,
releasing the water back into the Mississippi

Meaning they are only temporarily diverting the water...
its not a permanent fix

Here is a link to another thread... one that's in the OP
about Louisiana and flooding risk there
Here it is

Greenville, MS is flooding, Helena AR. There were videos on youtube about those 2 areas. Memphis is getting flooded more toward AR, than Memphis though. Some lake is flooding bad in MO. All up and down the River.
Eric, they took off the yellow on the map at except in New York State, Mass. Look at that huge area, you would think the Atlantic was going to cover the Northeast. The red did get bigger. I am a total insomnic.

I had a look see at that...

looks like NY state is getting some heavy floods!

Although not as pressing as the Mississippi issue

I guess it is safe to bet... if its located along the Mississippi river... its gonna be flooded!

Glad that the risk (yellow) zone have gone from the area!

By then end of the weekend... We should know the extent of all this damage

Well my friend, I am going to finally lay down...
it is 6am here in the EST

My Insomnia has crawled back in its hole,
time for some much needed rest

Everyone: Great work today!
and for those of you who are early birds

You can check this Page
for the latest updates on the 3rd levee breach detonation scheduled for today
as well as any information on other possible levee breaches.

I will be back tomorrow

Goodnight and Godbless!

THANKS for that link, thedude86. I checked it out. You are a prophet for this time.

Just wish more people here at ATS would listen to someone with inside info as opposed to calling them a disinfo-agent or government created fear inventor.

I have been very busy working with the NLE at the end of this month rather than working on the flood. But when I warn you ATS,,,,you should take note......not just attack my threads for receiving flags

Here is my thread again that talks about floods and other upcoming disasters of 2011

I knew this was coming, and I sure don't blame them. I can't get over how some reports are calling it a spillway, is that not the same as floodgate area. That levee has been there for years to protect the farms. This is not something that is done everytime there is a flood on the Miss River.

That Army Corp levee explosion has least sort of. On the one hand, it has lowered the level of the Mississippi 1½ feet up around Cairo, Illinois, BUT it has also triggered a new lawsuit on behalf of 90 homeowners impacted. Seems some days the ACE's just can win for losing. But Wednesdays are like that.

Thanks for all the information you guys are providing. I have been following along throughout the day since the thread started. Just noticed an update on Facebook about the third breech:

Birds Point New Madrid Floodway Joint Information Center Additional slurry material for blasting the third levee section (outflow crevasse) is expected to arrive later today. We expect it to take approximately 3 hours to load into pipes. The earliest we could complete the breaching of this levee section would be 8 or 9 p.m. tonight. We'll continue to post regular updates.Text

One of the comments on the post asked if this explosion would be as loud and Bird's Point said no.

Those that are in these areas please stay safe.

Does anyone know how many total homes have been flooded throughout all the affected states? Also, a total number of evacuations? It seems like totals should be easy to find, as it's important info, but so far I've had no luck. I find little blurbs about certain towns and neighborhoods here and there, but no comprehensive coverage.

posted on May, 4 2011 @ 01:06 PM
i posted this in another thread, but im posting it here as well... apologies if that gets the elders up in arms...

copy and paste:

just a right field thought here, but has anyone considered the isle of HAITI quake as a warning for HAYTI, MO as a possible target for the new madrid quake? TPTB work mysteriously, but ALWAYS hidden in plain sight.

i am looking into it right now and not finding out much. anyone care to join me?

reply to post by egregore

I hadn't considered that Haiti connection but it is something to think about and pay attention to.
My personal opinion is that there is more to this disaster then how cut and dry it appears to some.
I think the lack of MSM is very concerning given how many people will be effected. It seems that often after a FEMA prep, the real thing follows shortly after and they just had the shake out and I think another drill is scheduled on the 16(?). Between the OBL and Royal Wedding hype dominating the headlines there doesn't seem to be room for what is happening here. I too suspect that an earthquake is inevitable but don't know what the timetable would be. I don't agree with every prediction, youtube or ATS theory but I think we should be aware of what is going on. I am not living in fear or panicking, just taking precautions that could be used in a variety of scenarios (extra water/food/batteries/etc). I am not suggesting anyone do anything crazy based on people's predictions nor do I think many can say what for sure what will happen. All we can do is keep informed (allowing each to come to their own conclusions), be prepared and aware, and live our life. No amount of worrying will help or change what will happen.

Hope this isn't a double post, skimmed kind of quickly.

This thread is showing radar map with suspected HAARP rings. Maybe more bad weather coming...
It does appear a little fishy IMO

reply to post by bradychick

i appreciate your comment. you are correct with regards to not panicking for there TRULY is nothing the people on the fringe can do except satisfy our own curiosities and inform people of the TRUTH...

so far, all i have been able to dig up on hayti, mo is that it is a distribution hub (the size of which, i have not found out yet). BUT, it doesnt appear that there is anything of HUGE significance there (other than human lives, of course). next is to look into the gas lines that run through the fault zone...

all this is, is a hunch (think scooby-do) that was propagated as i reviewed google maps of the new madrid fault epicenter...

all we can do is HOPE that what is being reported is the true story. but given the current state of the world, red flags are going up all over the globe. maybe we can come together and figure this thing out! for the MSM is barely touching on this at all. BEYOND EYEBROW RAISING!!!
