Saturday, May 15, 2011. The question is: {W}here do {w}e begin?
The MS River at Natchez = 60.69'
By 8:00 a.m. this morning [60.62']
the river was 2/10 of a foot lower than the
 prediction of [2.2"]

this picture on the right is the inside of the hesco wall surrounding the Vidalia convention center. there is only minimal seepage as of may 14 a.m. this is pretty good considering there is 6+ feet of water on the other side of that wall.

     Are you ready for
                             some good news?

Our crest has been lowered!!!
            we will now crest at 63.0' on May 21.
To alleviate the levees further south and including New Orleans. The Morganza Spillway was opened on May14 [this allows the MS river to divert into the atchafalaya basin]. Click here to see it happen.  The opening of the spillway sent enough water to fill a football field 10' deep every second, across the heart of cajun country. Once the spillway was opened an estimated 15,000 acres of farmland were under water in south-central Louisiana.
