Those living inside the Bonnet Carre and Morganza floodways should start preparing to evacuate, Gov. Bobby Jindal said in a news conference this morning as flood levels along the Mississippi River head south toward Louisiana.



The Morganza Spillway was opened only once, in 1973, and that had less to do with high water than to relieve pressure on the Old River Control Structure upstream, where scouring by rapidly-moving water threatened to undermine that structure, Jindal said. This would be the first time the Morganza structure would be used because of high water levels.

So the Morganza spillway has been used before... but it is the first time due to high water levels!

So if you or anyone you know lives in that area. Please be ready. Knowing ahead of time is key to safety!
Please keep these people in your prayers...

I've been lurking in this thread and would like to thank everybody for doing a great job of keeping people informed. I have not heard anything about this on the MSM (I may have missed something) until a few minutes ago when I saw this link on Yahoo news:

Just making a post to say I'm glad everyone's hanging in there today, lots more info to read. Thanks to you all.
I have 3 questions.
What were those weird circle clouds on the map a few pages back?
Is it too early to tell if the fault has been uhh.. "aggravated" (for lack of a better term)?
Has the water level gone down by much?

Still not much in MSM here in Canada, but I've told my family and friends and they are keeping the affected folks in their thoughts.

I'll check back tomorrow

Apparently some small towns in Arkansas are being evacuated due to over topping of one levee, and a weakening situation in another. The reports are just coming in so info very sparse.

Sorry if you guys are getting sick of hearing me


Last one for a bit, I promise! Just came across this from a local Baton Rouge News paper/channel 2 News...

www.2theadvocate.com...

It is alot of info, but literally covers all that is happening around this area. Also covers some information on plans at Angola prison, which is surrounded by Mississippi River Levees on three sides. I'm not sure if you all have heard of Angola, but it is one of the biggest, baddest, prisons in the country!

Those are suspected HAARP rings, which I am keeping an eye on for the next couple days. I am following some possible connections on a couple sites I've come across regarding HAARP and earthquakes. Activity again about May 8th-10th could very possibly mean major quake equivilant to Japan. So I am watching. I am also watching solar activity along with HAARP in the time period of 8th-10th, which happened with Japan earthquake during the second shot of HAARP in a 10 day period.
Also significant things happening May 11th TPTB may want us distracted from.



In the mean time, I have to figure out what I am doing wrong with posting my
screenshots

One thought that has kept crossing my mind all day is "what if they are soaking this whole area/faultlines to HELP create a major earthquake with HAARP?"

And why would they WANT to do this to us and to our country?

As with Japan there is water involved... what if they need the water to make HAARP work for an earthquake?

Just rolling thoughts through my head. Maybe I'm just tired. Lack of sleep this week.

Oh gosh... I'm so sorry... thats bad
I hope you and your family are ok. I wish we could see and hear more about what is going on there.
Please keep us updated as you can.

Is the military there? National guard? Do you know where they may evacuate to?

So far, they have told all police personnel that they can't take vacation or have days off, to help with emergencies and to keep the peace when panic spreads from mass evacuation.

All of this news came on tonight.

The situation changes to worse every few hours.

Earlier, I went downtown to the river like many have been doing, to see history in the making; this great flood of 2011.

The water hadn't reached Beale street (similar to Bourbon St in new Orleans), but tonight, it made its way up to it filling up quickly.


In Memphis, 20,000 people will be evacuated, and they are saying that number more than likely will increase as the days go by.

They are serious.

The local news has been warning us and warning us because they know some won't take it seriously, stay here, and create casualties behind this. They don't want anyone to say that we weren't warned......

They have already told us what to be packing (vital records, bottle water, medicine, etc) and to be ready to leave at a MOMENT'S NOTICE

Prayers to you and your family!

When are they expecting the river to crest there? Here around Baton Rouge the forcast is the river cresting around May 27-28th! Thats over 20 days from now!

I can't imagine it could be very much sooner further up river.

Honey, if you are in any slightly low lying area around that river, please go ahead and make plans to leave now, even before they require it.

Missouri Guard stops rising flood waters



May 5, 2011

By Elise Higgins

SIKESTON, Mo. (Army News Service, May 5, 2011) -- Sandbagging the main road throughout the night, units from the Missouri National Guard's 'Rising Tide' task force of 760 Soldiers and Airmen were finally able to gain control over rising waters that threatened to flood Canalou in New Madrid County.

While residents and local authorities worked to save the small town in the southeast part of the state, Guardsman from the 1138th Engineer Sapper Company, 880th Engineer Haul Team and 220th Engineer Company worked feverishly building a makeshift levee of rocks and dirt with sandbags on top to divert the water into outlying fields.

Spc. Ned Williams of the 220th Eng. Co., was glad he had the opportunity to work with fellow engineers alongside members of the community.

"It was a good experience to work with Soldiers from other units," said Williams. "The interaction with us and the community was great."

Linda Robinson, a Canalou resident, said the town would have been in much worse shape had the Soldiers not arrived and gone to work as quickly as they did.

"I have lived here for 42 years and I have never seen anything like this before," said Robinson, who was there as the Soldiers sandbagged all night. "If it weren't for the National Guard, I don't know what we would have done."

Canalou Mayor Jim Taul, a retired Army first sergeant, was able to move possessions out of his flooded house while monitoring the town's citizens and Soldiers as they fought the flood waters.

"My house was already underwater, but we had to keep the water from going any further," said Taul.

Missouri National Guard Soldiers continue to respond quickly to changing conditions in the southeast Missouri region by providing sandbagging and evacuation support along with levee monitoring, route reconnaissance, security, traffic control and door-to-door safety checks.

Units supporting the flood response include: 7th Civil Support Team, Jefferson City; 70th Troop Command, Jefferson Barracks; Whiteman Air Force Base/St. Louis; 139th Airlift Wing, St. Joseph; Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 35th Engineer Brigade, Fort Leonard Wood; 175th Military Police Battalion, of Columbia; the 1140th Engineer Battalion, Cape Girardeau; the 1221st Transportation Company, of Dexter, Portageville and Sikeston; 1140th Forward Support Company, Cape Girardeau; the 1138th Military Police Company, of West Plains and Springfield; the 1138th Engineer Company, of Farmington and Fredericktown; the 1175th Military Police Company, of St. Clair and St. Louis; the 880th Engineer Detachment, Perryville; the 220th Engineer Company, Festus; the 1438th Engineer Company, of Macon and Kirksville; 70th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment of Jefferson City; Missouri Wing Civil Air Patrol and the Joint Operations Center at Joint Force Headquarters in Jefferson City.

Looks like the Missouri National Guard Soldiers have been deployed, as reported by the Army News Service. Stay safe friends and get out of harms way if at all possible, this is very dangerous situation be prepared to evacuate if necessary. My prayers are with you all coco
