Latest update I could find...


The lake was at about 332.7 mean sea level, as of 3 p.m. Friday, and could be dropped another three feet through normal spillway operations, Harrell said. At that point, workers will remove the plug from the intentional breach and, through a controlled flow, drop the lake level another six to eight feet, he said. “As for what that will mean for the downstream flow, there really should be little to no effect,” Harrell said. “The cut (breach) will have less discharge than what’s going through the spillway right now, so you shouldn’t see any additional effect there in Louisiana.”


And


Most of the residents within a half mile of the river evacuated Thursday, but many of them have started to return, Burgess said late Friday morning. “We would like for them to stay out at least 24 more hours,” Burgess said. He said that would give workers a chance to further reduce the water levels in the reservoir. There is still a danger that the dam will fail, he said.


It is apparent from this that:
1) People are ignorant; and,
2) Most of them will remain ignorant.

If I was running things, I would forcibly remove these people from the potential disaster area and only allow them to return when the work was done. I would gladly put up with the expression of hurt and anger on their faces while doing so, and buy them a cup of coffee on the trip back home.

Are you in Virginia? We had flooding rains all weekend. The whole area was underwater. Roads were closed and some people have been forced our of their homes which are now condemed. No hurricane, no dam break, just heavy rain over a short period of time and no where for all the water to go right away.

Its not necessary. Its not like this is something that happens all the time there. Check out the number of hurricanes that have hit LA compared to all that have hit florida. No one is saying to evacuate Florida forever. Texas, Louisana, Mississippi,Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Mass, Maine and the canadian maritimes have all had hurricanes with devastating results. I guess we should abandon the entire eastern seaboard just in case.

not that you are wrong in your estimation of how you're sizing up the veracity of said threat, or the fact that certain folks are "playing for keeps," but:

I have to say to this, don't tempt anyone, please. For the train is the perfect symbol for the begining of industrialization, and this began a whole new agenda and a way to put it across, as the only means for survival....
just sayin'.......

Though I've seen an active member with something similar to this screen name, (different as in another number following Karen), you are aware you are asking a response from a member now banned, who cannot respond?
