This PDF has a key note: "The expected crest in Baton Rouge is around the level of the record flood of 1927 (48 feet)."

I don't watch the MSM, so as you mentioned EE that what's been happening up north hasn't been mentioned, or what is in store for other areas, this is historic.

It is under the radar, because it doesn't matter to the "Major cities" on the coasts of the US. The people in the news aren't able to think beyond stage one, and well what does moving a few people around and destroying valuable farm land really matter to the major cities. The same thing was done, and still is, for the fires in Texas. It is the driest there since 1917, so wheat will miss at least its first cut if not its first two, and now this as well. We are sitting on top of a huge food crisis, and the U.S. is suffering just like Russia, China, India, and Australia did last year and over the winter. There is also a new disease called wheat rust that is in the Middle East, and surrounding areas, and may have made it into the U.S. Ug 99 is a crop killer, taking out 20-60% of a wheat crop when it hits, and yet this isn't covered at all anywhere in the news. Store up food, because we are being intentionally set into a major crisis.

Ok, I finally have some news in the Great White North here. Canoe News

Large amounts of rain and melt from the winter snow has caused a chain reaction of flooding from Canada and the Dakotas through Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennessee. It is expected to soon hit Mississippi and Louisiana at the mouth of the Mississippi River. ... President Barack Obama on Wednesday declared parts of Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee as disaster areas due to flooding.

No offense, but it took a pretty long time to declare this emergency!

The levee system in Mississippi is holding for now but it has never been tested like this before, officials said. “Compared to the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 this flood is going to be a lot nastier,” said Marty Pope, senior hydrologist for the National Weather Service in Jackson, Miss.

PLEASE make sure your go bags are ready!

Now in slightly off topic-but-related news: Flood Plagued Manitoba Farms Must Wait For Fields To Dry Off

Most Manitoba fields are still too wet for planting — if they're not covered in water — and that's got grain growers worrying. ... farm fields are soaked all across the province — including in southwest Manitoba, which is usually high and dry. ...

Apparently if things don't dry up by about May 21st, "we're in real big trouble". And to make matters worse, some areas had a snow/rain mix bringing an additional 70 mil of precip.the other day.

All this flooding SERIOUSLY does not bode well for the food situation...

I disagree. I don't think this is the reason for the OBL news.
Want to know what is really happening? I may author a thread on this if I have time because I can give more insight into it.

OBL was "taken out" to mix things up and muddy things for future incidences. It was used to get some support for Obama and to give a temporary rally for the dollar so silver and gold will drop and people will get worried and sell/stop buying. Everyone the rise in the dollar is temporary and will be very very short lived. Buy silver and gold up as quick as you can. It is a planned ruse.

Also in the event of a possible future lashing out from Gaddaffi who has many more resources to carry out an attack in retaliation for the murder of his baby grandkids they can pin it on a new Al Qaeda boogey man who will be the same as OBL. They can pin it on an AQ retaliation instead of Libyan for our crimes there.

The reason we tried to kill Gaddaffi last week was because Osama is a huge enemy of his, he was the first to issue an warrant for Osama, and if anyone can shed some light on what really happened with Osama it is Gaddaffi so we tried to kill him before we had to announce the Bin Laden news.

Our president has committed at least two war crimes in one week and no one is saying anything. They are setting people who question it up as perpetual conspiracy theorists. Speak out when the final act is initiated and see what happens. All we can do is try to get the truth out now.


Ok.. I thought it was kind of important so i started a thread on it here in general conspiracies. Mostly just a conversation starter.

edit on 6-5-2011 by GogoVicMorrow because: (no reason given)


The other major news that came out that week was the final accounting from 2010, and here is the major problem in it. The entitlement programs + interest were 2.245 Trillion while the income for the entire U.S. government was only 2.2 Trillion, which means that if they cut every single program to zero, besides Medicare/Medicaid, SSDI, and the interest owed on the debt, we would still have to borrow money to keep our promises. Unless we get the total GDP of the U.S. to grow, and by a 5% or higher amount, then we are screwed.

I went to my hometown (Vicksburg, MS) yesterday to see the rising flood waters. The water is already touching the flood wall and officials have removed part of the train tracks to build an addition to the flood wall which I don't think has ever had to be done. I can't believe this isn't being reported more in the media. It makes me feel sick to my stomach to think about all of the people that will be losing everything. However, I was thankful to see that a couple of Red Cross shelters have already opened up around town. I took lots of pictures but being computer illiterate I have no idea how to post them!!

Thanks for all the updates!

I just have to say something. Back this winter when day after day,for months, reports of record snow fall were all over the news. I said out loud then, to my husband, flooding is going to be EPIC this spring.

At the time, I saw it as common sense.

WHY DID THIS NOT OCCUR TO ANY OF THESE STATE'S LEADERS?

Why weren't any steps to protect lands over the levees taken any sooner?

That is something that has really rubbed me wrong about all of this.

So far, Police Officers ,Health Dept. officials, and Shelby County EMA have began going door to door warning residents with evacuations/ advisements to leave.

CNN is really giving this issue MAJOR airtime, I see.

Chad Myers gave extensive coverage and told citizens that the flood waters are no joke and that people should be leaving before they notice water in their yard, because by then, it will be too late to leave.

Not too far off topic though, it all relates in the long run.
Saskatchewan and Alberta's southern areas are still suffering too, Sask also got hit with that blizzard a couple of days ago. Wet, very soggy fields. You can't even tell what's lakes or farmland anymore until it dries up.

The flooding of the thousands of acres of land they're flooding with blowing the Mississippi levees, is just going to add to the food shortage.

hey everyone
i just wanted to say i've been closely watching this thread since page 1 and im sending as much positive energy your way as i can! and this WAS on my local news in Canada, a city in Ontario, a couple mornings ago (i thought the news was a bit late in the game, but i also forget how fast news comes into ATS). so some of us are aware that its a major situation and are keeping updated! I hope that everyone is safe and doing ok

This PDF may have maps within it that are of interest. I believe I read in one of the articles that updated flood maps will be forthcoming. Hopefully within the next day or so.

OMG!! So whether they open the Morganza spillway or not, It will still flood?? Thank you for that link. That gives you an idea of how bad this situation is...



BATON ROUGE – Land and structures in the Morganza Spillway will flood, even if the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers does not open the gates, Commissioner of Agriculture Mike Strain and Gov. Bobby Jindal said today. “It is inevitable that Morganza will flood and the system will top, regardless of whether they open the system,” Strain said at a press conference at the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security.

They should have been letting them know a lot sooner, many people didn't even know this was happening. It would have given people more time to get their things out of harms way. They wait until the water is at the door steps to even let people know what was going on. Most people depend totally on the TV news to tell them what is going on.

Good thing Lafayette is not near mississippi river. We need new insights and updates on linking this flooding with the New Madrid disaster, anyone? BTW when is ULL's spring break?

I have been reading this thread from day one and have been amazed that this story has not been spashed all over the news as it is obviously a massive event.
Looked at the news today and saw a bit more information being given to people in the UK and noticed this



In Tennessee, where officials do not have the authority to order evacuations, emergency responders were said to be handing out flyers on Friday in both English and Spanish that read: "Evacuate!!! Your property is in danger right now."


my question is
who does have the authority and why if they know it is going to get worse aren't they ordering evacuations so that people have enough time to gather up as much of their belongings as possible?
