That's no problem. Myra are you sure ya'll are going to be ok over there in Lafayette? It worries me.

Last night just before Army Corps of Engineers released that flood map of the Morganza, I came across three different articles talking about how the Corps was not releasing it, even though they had been getting request for days from all over the state.

I tried to go back and find one of the articles, but now that they have actually released the map, those old articles are drowned out in google.

Then when I saw the map, and the big disclaimer on it, and knowing they were reluctant about its release, I truly don't believe they know exactly what is going to happen once the Morganza is open

Lafayette looks way better than houma La that for sure. Houma is that white spider looking thing in the middle of that purple flood plain. all the legs of the spider is where people have settled. 0-5 feet is going to be a big deal for all the people of St mary, Acension, Terrebonne, and all the surrounding parishes.

Came across this article



--NLE 2011 -- FEMA's largest National Level Exercise in history has commenced. It reportedly involves over 1 million people. The states that are involved are those that already have experienced record tornado outbreaks, horrendous flooding, and consistent earthquake tremors. Now, the Army Corps of Engineers has detonated 250 tons of TNT in this fault zone to so-called mitigate flooding . Residents are now reporting that decontamination units have been set up as part of this "exercise".

Does anyone in this area on this thread know of "decontamination units" being set up?

Are you from that area? Do you know people down there? Have they evacuated yet? I realize they haven't called for mandatory evacuations, but I know if I was there I would be gone.

I live on the North Shore, and far enough north that we are ok here.

Its crazy that more people arent taking this very serious.

Just imagine if there are levee breaches in Baton Rouge or New Orleans. Honestly, it's not like it CAN'T happen!

Hope you and yours are safe Khaaaaaan

This article Quotes Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal saying that the crest will last 7 to 10 days, and areas could remain flooded until July!

www.andfed.com...




In Vidalia, Louisiana, authorities had completed the evacuation of a hospital there and were scrambling to build fortifications around water supplies and other infrastructure, Gov. Bobby Jindal said. He said forecasters have told him parts of the state could be dealing with high water levels until July. “You’ll have a crest that could last seven to 10 days, but you could have elevated water levels last for weeks after that,” he said.

"It is inevitable that Morganza will flood and the system will top, regardless of whether they open the system," Strain said at a news conference at the Governor's Office of Homeland Security.

Yeah I'm in the area. I'm going to get a front row seat for this one. I live in a levee'd community bordering the flood plain, and I think we will be OK, but I will be affected, as I travel, and work all thru that flood plain. I'll have pics if I think things are worth posting about. I've already heard mississipi boat traffic commenting on the water levels though so thats why I'm posting.

Ok, this is all I could find on googling this

theintelhub.com...




Here is a story coming from residents in the area. My wife came home through Marion today after work and when she got home she told me what she had seen in Marion Illinois.. This was around 7pm tonight. The National Guard or Army is set up at the old Wal Mart parking lot with 2 Decontamination units ( red trailers marked decontamination ) and they flood lights set up (daytime so not in use) and 7 other tents set up and equipment.. There were also police vehicles from Loves Park and Illinois state police , and a red semi trailer marked Illinois terrorist unit.. area was cordoned off where no civilians could enter. They have been there since last saturday and on the decontamination units were not there..



Maybe they were being prepared "just in case" because of the radioactive titrium bing released, but




"Although concentrations of tritium exceeded EPA drinking water limits, the release should not represent a hazard to public health because of its dilution in the river," insisted Lara Uselding, public affairs officer at NRC Region IV, to reporters.





Such a statement, of course, is a health concern because precise levels of released tritium are unknown. Just because the radioactive substance has been diluted does not necessarily mean it is harmless, nor does it verify the substance's source or whether or not it is still being unknowingly released. Without this crucial information, there is no telling where else tritium might be lurking around the plant and river. A beta radioactive substance, tritium bombards cells and damages DNA when inhaled or swallowed, and can persist in the body for more than ten years upon exposure. Its perpetual effect on cells can lead to all sorts of serious diseases, including, but not limited to, gene mutations, birth defects, and cancer.

I was emailing a friend of mine that is an astrophsyicsist, He didn't even know about the flood he lives in California, but what he said was kinda shocking.



The Nov 2010 fireballs put a lot of comet dust in the atmosphere. The flooding in the south is part of the fallout of this event. I even bought flood insurance for my house as there is a slight risk here. Is Memphis now flooded? Keep me informed.


From some of what I found googling is that it may even cause a mini-ice age. I just did another dumb messed up thread, but this could be a thread on it's own.

I found this to be interesting... with Hurricane season right around the corner


content.usatoday.net...

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Army Corps of Engineers says the rising Mississippi River has forced it to suspend work on 15 miles of hurricane levees on New Orleans' west bank and in Plaquemines Parish — from English Turn to Oakville.

A news release says high water construction restrictions will keep it from finishing by June 1, but it expects to do so by the peak of hurricane season.

The corps says work on the rest of the 133-mile system of levees, floodwalls and surge barriers is on track to be finished by the start of hurricane season. It says new barriers at Lake Borgne and other points have pushed the line of protection outside of the city and removed about 68 miles of interior levees and floodwalls from exposure to storm surges.
