    Have you heard of Hurricane Katrina and what it did to New Orleans, LA?

    Well if the Mississippi river was allowed to rise without the spillways being opened that were put in place to control flooding, and the flood waters were allowed to flow down the river then this would be a worse disaster.

    I am soooooo happy nothing like Katrina or this occurred in the time I lived in New Orleans or Slidell. Just one tropical storm in the whole 5 years.

    Hi
    I was here during Katrina ( and cleaned up the mess at the Mother in Laws) the eye went by about 50 miles East up I-55 way, we lost power for 3 days... Also did visit NO a few months after, what a mess it made...

    "President Coolidge came down in a railroad train
    with a little fat man with a note pad in his hand.
    President say: "Little fat man, is'n it a shame,
    what the river has done to this poor cracker's land"

    From Randy Newman's "Louisiana (1927)"

    "Be well and safe" to all living there, or otherwise being threatened by the floodings.
