In fact, some are now projecting that this will be the worst Mississippi River flood ever recorded since the United States became a nation. You don't believe that? Well, Bob Anderson, an Army Corps of Engineers spokesman based in Vicksburg, Mississippi says that there has "never been a flood of this magnitude on the upper Mississippi". And you know what they say - "never" is a really, really long time.
So how long is this flooding going to last?
At this point, the Mississippi River is expected to crest at 48 feet around May 11th.
But this disaster will last much longer than that.
Authorities are saying that the Mississippi River could stay at flood stage for more than a month.
The economic damage, the property damage and the loss of crops is going to be incalculable.
It is important to understand that this is just not another flood. This is literally a history changing nightmare.

People will also be desperate and blaming each other. They will come to hate anyone not like themselves. Some people will be desperate and they will begin to steal or kill for things. Then people will see it happening and say "Those blacks are always doing stuff like that." Or "Those poor white trash people coming over to our state from over there, they are nothing but trouble."
There will be race wars, you can bet.
It is what the powers that be want. Why try to destroy us when we can do just fine destroying ourselves? They will have us fighting our own war and they can just sit back and watch us destroy ourselves.
